Collaborative Critical Thinking For Real World Change by Chuck Sandy. What is critical thinking really if it doesn’t lead to real-world action and changes in behavior? In this interactive session, we’ll explore examples of how both student and teacher communities around the world are using frameworks grounded in critical thinking theory to create community change and spark both personal and professional growth. I'll then invite you to join a collaborative project designed to change the way you think about critical thinking and professional development.
While classroom management issues lie at the heart of the student–teacher relationship, little time is given to discussing them in a more formal setting. The presenters will offer some choice examples of practices that have worked well (e.g., learning names; dealing with problem students; organizing pair/group work), followed by a chance for discussion and the fruitful exchange of ideas. Recognizing that no strategy works in all situations, we can broaden our understanding of options available to us.
