One of the greatest disappointments is the lack of thinking in schools.  When adults are asked “How many teachers in your schooling taught you to think – not to know?” the average response is two.  This is a sad indictment on our education system.

Critical Thinking is based on:

  • Defining
  •  Interpreting
  •  Analysing or discerning
  •  Reasoning
  •  Classifying
  •  Evaluating
  •  Contemplating
  •  Explaining

Creative Thinking is based on:

  •  Combining Parts
  •  Sifting and Synthesising
  •  Constructing and Modelling
  •  Brainstorming
  •  Acting on Intuition
  •  Discerning different viewpoints
