The Reboot Foundation teamed up with a group of leading teachers from around the country to develop and publish How To Teach Critical Thinking.

Most teachers recognize the importance of critical thinking for their students, especially during these complex, contentious, and information-saturated times. But there remain many obstacles to teaching critical thinking, including a shortage of time, other institutional priorities, and a lack of effective, user-friendly materials. It’s this last need Reboot has sought to address with its research-backed and subject-oriented guide to integrating critical thinking into teachers’ curricula. We drew both on the most authoritative research and teachers’ experiences to create a clear and practical guide that teachers can put to use immediately in their classrooms.

This virtual discussion brings together Helen Lee Bouygues, Founder and CEO of the Reboot Foundation, with experts on critical thinking, including two of the teachers involved in the development of the guide. Join these experts in thinking through the importance of critical thinking and the best ways teachers can deliver this essential skill to their students.
