Greetings Cross Creek Educators,
In this hybrid book study teachers will earn a total of 12 hours (1.2 ceu's) for reading each chapter, responding to discussion prompts online, and sharing application of ideas. You will be given no later than (NLT) dates for completing chapters.
I want to thank Melissa Storms for giving me much needed help with this study. In growth mindset fashion, I had to experience a little failure in order to become a better blogger.
Read chapter four, click on "comments" to answer. Number your answer to correspond with the question. You will be asked to 1. Describe a critical thinking activity that you use in your classroom. You will then look at your assigned colleague's entry and 2. respond, summing up why their activity employs the elements of critical thinking (Pages 55-56).
It doesn't matter who responds first.
*Reynolds responds to Merritt, Merritt responds to Reynolds
*Hasapis responds to McGinnis, McGinnis responds to Hasapis
*Hosking responds to Huffman, Huffman responds to Hosking
*Howard responds to Little, Little responds to Howard
*Starling responds to Kerr, Kerr responds to Starling
*Rappold responds to Rivera, Rivera responds to Rappold
*Shields responds to a colleague of her choice.
Let's aim for December 2 for the description of the critical thinking activity to be posted, and December 15th for the response.
A little different for Administration
*Patrick responds to Hickle, Hickle responds to Patrick to this question: Why is Critical Thinking Important in a Growth Mindset School Culture?
Remember there are cut-off limits, so brevity is the order of the day!
