Berkeley, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/20/2013 -- In the past few decades, leaders, politicians, and citizens have increasingly called for critical thinking in schooling at all levels. President Obama has called for it publicly, as did President Clinton and the first President Bush. Yet few educators (and few people for that matter) have a rich, substantive, explicit conception of critical thinking.
For more than 30 years, the Center and Foundation for Critical Thinking have advanced a fairminded conception of critical thinking through their writings, workshops, conferences and professional developmentprograms. In this light, we invite your coverage of the upcoming International Spring Workshops on Critical Thinking (March 22-24).
With the recent media focus on the Common Core State Standards, a real public discussion about the need for critical thinking ineducation is more important than ever. This workshop will help equip teachers and administrators with the tools they need to foster critical thinking in teaching and learning
WHAT: International Spring Workshops on Critical Thinking
