  A. The Six Underlying factors


II. Operational: what should be done

        Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   ???   2
So, why did the chicken
    cross the road?




   Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   dwin   3
Chickens, over great
periods of time, have been
naturally selected in such a
  way that they are now
  genetically disposed to
        c
        cross roads.




       Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   end/means   4
Who cares why? The end
   of crossing the road
justifies whatever motive
        there was.




      Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   sgmnet   5
The fact that you are
                                      at all concerned that
                                       the chicken crossed
                                      the road reveals your
                                        underlying sexual
                                            insecurity.




Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   albrt                   6
Whether the chicken
 crossed the road or the
road moved beneath the
  chicken is a matter of
       r
       relativity.




     Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   WB   7
We don't really care why
   the chicken crossed the
    road. We just want to
 know if the chicken is on
   our side of the road, or
 not. The chicken is either
against us, or for us. There
 is no middle ground here.




    Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   W
                                          bill   8
I did not cross the road with that chick-en.

How can we foster Critical Thinking via ELT?

Part I: Six underling factors governing the educational
                      environment




     Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   school         11
1. The school is…

                                       a space where each
                                      leaner’s individuality is
                                           supposed to be
                                         respected, nurtured
                                        without having to be
                                             duplicated




Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking         Ts                    12
2. The facilitator is …
                                    Is not there to inject
                                        students brains with
                                        prescribed dosage of
                                        inputs; but to defrost
                                        Ls’ thoughts by:
                                        distanced guidance,
                                        provoking open ended
                                        questions, liberating
                                        imaginations,
                                        encouraging creativity
                                        and help tolerating
                                        fallacies

4. The syllabi are …
                                      Because Knowledge is not
                                          a collection of facts,
                                         but rather an ongoing
                                        process of examining &
                                               evaluating
                                            information, and
                                           adding it to one’s
                                             understanding.

                                      A mechanical nor is it
                                        predictable process of
                                       input cramming. It is a
                                              negotiable
                                           communicative
                                        relationship between

6. The learning outcomes
                                     Are and will never to be
                                            expected to be
                                         duplicated; because
                                        learners do not grow
                                         up in laboratories.
                                       They are coming from
                                       different backgrounds,
                                            with different
                                        intelligences, needs,
                                      expectations; and more
                                          importantly, they
                                         process knowledge
                                             differently.

    Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking    3 logics             17
Part II: what should be done:
       Logic of the classroom




Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   Mind   18
1. Logic of Students’ mind


Instructors should look at
        the logic of the
     students’ mind as the
   framework upon which
         they build up
      knowledge; and not
    the other way around!




    Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   content   19
Logic of Content
Instructors need to explicitly help students understand
   the logic of the content by showing the contents’:

1 format

2 structure

3 Sequence

4 Objectives

5 limitations


           Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking   strageis   20
3. Logic of Reasoning

 Identifying key definitions

Why did the chicken cross the road?

  • 1. MATE’s 32nd National Conference 9-12, April 2012.Oujda, Morocco “Why did the chicken cross the road”? By: Badre Abdeslam ALC – Rabat & Mohammed V University Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking line 1
  • 2. Outline I. Theoretical: What needs to be known A. The Six Underlying factors II. Operational: what should be done A. Acting upon the logic of the classroom Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking ??? 2
  • 3. So, why did the chicken cross the road? Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking dwin 3
  • 4. Chickens, over great periods of time, have been naturally selected in such a way that they are now genetically disposed to c cross roads. Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking end/means 4
  • 5. Who cares why? The end of crossing the road justifies whatever motive there was. Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking sgmnet 5
  • 6. The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity. Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking albrt 6
  • 7. Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road moved beneath the chicken is a matter of r relativity. Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking WB 7
  • 8. We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here. Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking W bill 8
  • 9. I did not cross the road with that chick-en. Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking mnkey 9
  • 10. How can we foster Critical Thinking via ELT? Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking 6 facts 10
  • 11. Part I: Six underling factors governing the educational environment Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking school 11
  • 12. 1. The school is… a space where each leaner’s individuality is supposed to be respected, nurtured without having to be duplicated Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking Ts 12
  • 13. 2. The facilitator is … Is not there to inject students brains with prescribed dosage of inputs; but to defrost Ls’ thoughts by: distanced guidance, provoking open ended questions, liberating imaginations, encouraging creativity and help tolerating fallacies Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking Ls 13
  • 14. 3. Learners are… Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking syllbs 14
  • 15. 4. The syllabi are … Because Knowledge is not a collection of facts, but rather an ongoing process of examining & evaluating information, and adding it to one’s understanding. Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking process 15
  • 16. 5. Teaching /Learning is .. A mechanical nor is it predictable process of input cramming. It is a negotiable communicative relationship between the L/T/C Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking result 16
  • 17. 6. The learning outcomes Are and will never to be expected to be duplicated; because learners do not grow up in laboratories. They are coming from different backgrounds, with different intelligences, needs, expectations; and more importantly, they process knowledge differently. Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking 3 logics 17
  • 18. Part II: what should be done: Logic of the classroom Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking Mind 18
  • 19. 1. Logic of Students’ mind Instructors should look at the logic of the students’ mind as the framework upon which they build up knowledge; and not the other way around! Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking content 19
  • 20. Logic of Content Instructors need to explicitly help students understand the logic of the content by showing the contents’: 1 format 2 structure 3 Sequence 4 Objectives 5 limitations Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking strageis 20
  • 21. 3. Logic of Reasoning  Identifying key definitions  Identifying ambiguity  Identifying variables  Formulating questions  Defining issue or problem  Classifying information  Sequencing information  Identifying relationships Abdeslam Badre on Critical 21 Thinking
  • 22. 3. Logic of Reasoning (cont..)  Recognizing patterns  Determining credibility  Distinguishing fact from opinion  Identifying assumptions  Comparing & contrasting  Cause and effect  Summarizing information  Using analogies  Identifying values  Noting missing evidence Abdeslam Badre on Critical Thinking back crossing 22
  • 23. The question is not why did the chicken cross the road? Abdeslam Badre on Critical 23 Thinking
  • 24. The question is: Why should not that chicken cross the road? Abdeslam Badre on Critical 24 Thinking
