Product Description
Begin your class with a class starter…as if you don’t, right? Have you ever considered using a quote, aphorism, or proverb?

Critical thinking quotes helps students to develop their critical thinking skills as they consider what the statement or proverb means.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
★Students are able to make connections to their own lives based on their interpretation of the quote.

★Students should understand that each of them may have a different interpretation because as individuals they have different backgrounds, experiences, and of course, think differently!

★The mini-class discussion will help ease students into that day’s lesson.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In this product, I have provided 15 weeks’ worth of class starters, which is a total of seventy five quotes.

I personally post my on the first slide of the PowerPoint I use for my lesson that day. The procedures are simple:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

★Students should copy the date, the quote, and answer questions 1 and 2.

★All starters are written in a one subject or composition notebook for easy grading.

★Class starters are graded biweekly on a Friday. The notebook will be taken up and given back.

★Class starters are worth a quiz grade.

★Class starters should be numbered daily for organization.

★If students miss a day, they are still responsible for making up the missed class starter.

★You can simply keep a notebook with weekly starters in class for them to copy if they were absent for that day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have always enjoyed the hunt for the most thought provoking quotes by some of the most brilliant thinkers including Martin Luther King, Albert Einstein, Eleanor Roosevelt, Mark Twain, Maya Angelou, and a host of others.

My favorites include proverbs. These witty statements may cause students to crease their brows but that is where the fun lies!
