As a school, if you declare that you teach “critical thinking,” if you claim to develop this one of the 7 C’s of 21st C learning, then how much time and attention do you devote to divergent thinking? How much space and freedom do you allow for this 50% of meta-cognition? For faculty? For parents? For students? For administration?
Or would you likely get a “50” on your report card for
creative critical thinking allowance?
