What thinking skills should I target for my classroom?
I want students to be able to build on and apply the new information that they are learning. I want them to be able to analyze examples for correctness. I want them to be able to put all of the information together. I really want for students to understand and buy into the fact that they will use what they are being taught later in life, either as a high schooler, as a college student, as an employee, or as a citizen (application). I want students to be able to evaluate/proofread their finished product for accuracy.
