With our newly defined goal of producing students who are equipped to think critically and solve problems, we have started looking at where in our curriculum this is taking place. The obvious places are math and science, where there are problems to solve and thinking processes to learn and practice. Social studies and Bible are other subjects which can lend themselves to using deep thinking and problem solving skills when taught with these goals in mind. Even subjects like music and PE can incorporate individual and group problem-solving games that require critical thinking and teamwork. English language arts has many opportunities for deep and thoughtful reading, careful and thorough researching, and structured writing that uses the language to solve problems and achieve specific goals. In the coming months we will be identifying specific assignments and learning tasks that best equip our students with critical thinking and problem solving skills.
