Nurture critical thinking skills in your classroom using the resources shared in this collection. Critical thinking is a process that includes the ability to interpret, analyze, and evaluate information. Thinking critically requires students to infer and solve problems with an open mind. Students use critical thinking skills to observe, experience, communicate and reflect while reading and learning content. As contentious public events spill over into the classroom, teachers need to help students learn how to process perspectives that differ from their own. Use this collection as you are planning your lessons and activities.

tag(s): critical thinking (100), media literacy (89), problem solving (213)

In the Classroom

Help your students to practice critical thinking skills using these engaging resources. Share these resources with your colleagues and school parents by emailing the page or sharing the link from your school web page and in your school newsletter.

Input a name or event into the search bar and watch your timeline come to life as you scroll through events in chronological order. Customize your timeline using the edit feature to add additional information or delete unwanted occurrences or information. Share your timeline using the included links to social media sites, send by email, or use the print icon to print your timeline.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): timelines (46)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this handy tool for many classroom uses. Displayed through a visual timeline, this is an excellent way for students to look at information and provide context through the order of events. Create a timeline to share on your interactive whiteboard when studying historical characters and events. Use the editing tool to narrow down information by specific dates or delete items irrelevant to your lesson. Ask students to compare and contrast people or events to help them get perspective on events leading up to important moments in history. For example, create a timeline for Thomas Jefferson and another for Alexander Hamilton and ask students to compare and contrast important events in their lives and consider how these impacted their view on America's founding principles. Have students share their reflections and information on a simple webpage created using Carrd, reviewed here. Expand learning further by asking students to use a presentation tool such as Sway, reviewed here, to demonstrate understanding. Ask students to include a link to their Wikipedia timeline along with images, Venn diagram comparisons, and other information found during their research. You can even use this tool for classic novels! Try searching Gone With the Wind..

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session is from August 2020. You can register and immediately view the archive of the session.

Digital or online reading is different from reading print. Digital reading often includes a research component that is not linear, so when reading online, students need to clarify their purpose and then evaluate and synthesize information. Come learn about the processes involved in digital reading and explore three tools that will help you teach critical strategies to your students. As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Understand skills and processes involved in digital reading; 2. Explore tools that help students find, evaluate, and synthesize what they read; and 3. Plan for digital reading instruction in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

tag(s): digital reading (4), professional development (262)

In the Classroom

The archive of this teacher-friendly, hands-on webinar will empower and inspire you to use learning technology in the classroom and for professional productivity.

This blog post explains the different categories of the Dewey Decimal System, including descriptions of subcategories found within each of the ten main categories. Also, the author shares why it is necessary to include subcategories as a means for locating specific information within broad category topics. Another point stated in the blog discusses the need to make numbers longer because much of the information found in today's libraries hadn't happened at the time of the system's creation.

tag(s): classification (22), media literacy (89), Research (52)

In the Classroom

Use this blog post as a starting point for student research into a variety of topics. For example, ask students to find and share examples of books that include items or events not thought possible when the Dewey Decimal system was created. Ask students to visualize future events and how they would be classified. Use an online organization tool like Padlet, reviewed here, to create columns for each category and ask students to create a post sharing a possible item that might fit in that category in the future.
