What does Critical Thinking mean to young people?
Will integrating critical thinking into teaching/learning curriculms from kindergarden onwards, give young people the skills that they need to make more informed descisions during their lives?
Learing to think for them selves is bound to make them more reponsible citizens. Critical thinking will make young people feel they are more inclusive in the community and that they can make a difference.
It could impede on their levels of creative output.They are better off learning to live with the consequences of their actions
Young people are just incapable of thinking for themselves and will always need adult guidence. They are better off just accepting how society expects them to behave as citizens, and behave accordingly.
Crtical thinking is just another governing objective which will add more confusion to an already over burdened education system.
