Nurturing critical thinking skills is a beneficial practice for everybody and is much needed in all aspects of life.  When students are able to think critically, they make better decisions, and you can see their curiosity change drastically!

Educators must be able to stimulate students to think critically about their lessons, homework, and the demonstration of skill mastery.  It is central to students’ being capable of complex thoughts and better problem solvers leading, ultimately, to their success.
