Additional Book Details

There is a great need for critical thinking in schools and by teachers. Current educational reform efforts emphasize student testing on basic information and rote memorization. What is lost is education that involves critical thinking creativity and consideration of alternatives. The essential framework for this book is the stimulation of critical thinking—to include dialogue and dialectic approaches.Critical Issues in Education includes opposing sides of the issues presented and illustrates through competing essays on each topic how critical thinking dialogue and dialectic approaches improve understanding and the evaluation of available evidence and reasoning.
