This fall we are offering SED 533 Teaching Critical and Creative Thinking in Gifted Program and Classroom Settings

This course prepares teachers to increase the levels of critical and creative thinking in their classroom teaching. Topics include critical thinking, creative thinking, and problem solving in education in regular classrooms, arts/music classrooms, and in the education of gifted students. Participants will learn about assessment of critical thinking and creativity; social and cultural practices which facilitate or inhibit critical and creative thinking; and classroom practices which stimulate or inhibit critical and creative thinking in students and in teachers. Specific research-based classroom strategies will be taught.
