Protecting Learning Pods
COVID-19 brought K-12 education to a grinding halt in March. Many traditional public schools remain closed to in-person instruction this fall, while many families are left to navigate the school districts’ crisis online-learning offerings.

Critical Thinking
How the concept of critical thinking emerged, how it has been defined, and how critical thinking skills can be taught.
Critical thinking is regularly cited as an essential twenty-first century skill, the key to success in school and work. Given our propensity to believe fake news, draw incorrect conclusions, and make decisions based on emotion rather than reason, it might even be said that critical thinking is vital to the survival of a democratic society. But what, exactly, is critical thinking?
Haber argues that the most important critical thinking issue today is that not enough people are doing enough of it. Fortunately, critical thinking can be taught, practiced, and evaluated. This book offers a guide for teachers, students, and aspiring critical thinkers everywhere, including advice for educational leaders and policy makers on how to make the teaching and learning of critical thinking an educational priority and practical reality.
