General Description

What type of fish are in your classroom? Do you want to change that? As educators we need to develop critical thinking skills and ways of knowing in our youngest students.

 

As educators we need to develop critical thinking skills and ways of knowing in our youngest students. They see the world and learning in all it’s possibilities and wonder, meaning they are open to learning cognitive skill development. By recognising the potential in our youngest students and not limiting them with too much routine, we will see the intellectual and creativity that is exceptional and largely untapped.
