How To Teach Creative Thinking
An education expert explores ways to teach creativity and critical thinking to students.
Education expert and alumnus of Teach For America, Zoe Burgess, writes about teaching creative and critical thinking to students and also how to measure if they are developing these skills. She defines critical thinking as the “ability to understand and apply the abstract, the ability to infer and to meaningfully investigate” and even though she acknowledges that teaching critical thinking is challenging, she says it still can be taught and students can be tested on it.
