These stimulating and varied resources, strategies, and ideas have been designed to aid educators in equipping young people with vital critical thinking skills whilst learning English. In a rapidly changing and ever-more competitive world, it is of the utmost importance that children leave school with the learning skills and mindsets needed to take on wide-ranging challenges and obstacles. Learning to think critically can enable them to become rational, reflective, and resourceful learners, who are able to comprehend information beyond the 'surface' or 'initial' level. These skills of tackling misconceptions and given truths, and critically analysing and evaluating what they are presented with, can also be of vital importance in developing a deep understanding of English concepts. Grounded in education research, the initial section of this pack contains a number of resources that will be of use to CPD leaders, including links to clear explanatory videos and theory. The second section of the resource pack contains strategies, ideas, and resources for teachers looking to build English skills in critical thinking through the key areas of comprehension, SPAG, and vocabulary. All images and videos are licensed for commercial use, and where necessary are cited on the final slide of the PowerPoint presentation.
