It seems obvious that in order for a student to be able to synthesize that there are steps before that. But I know that I and many other educators ask students to do this without the necessary and preparatory information they need. To see this on paper, in plain sight, was helpful. It was also a bit daunting because I know there are other areas of this course that I need to revise in the same way. <br />– Graduate Education Student<br />The EASy Critical Thinking method -- I spent so much time on this, but learned so much at the same time. I probably elaborated more than I needed to on my new lesson plan, but somehow I could not help myself. When I was done and writing the synopsis of things that changed from my old to new lesson plan, I realized how much more engaging it would be for students to participate in my new and improved lesson plan. I can see where it fosters so much more critical thinking when compared to my traditional lesson plan. It makes me want to change all my lessons.<br /> - University Instructor<br />
