Product Reviews Write a review for this product

"The learning strategies employed in Practical Critical Thinking take into account the unique qualities of the adolescent brain. Consequently, students find the material both enjoyable and easy to absorb. It is organized and expressed in such a way as to maximize attention and encourage motivation through fun, concrete activities that create positive learning experiences. Chapters are divided into concise, digestible sections that engage students in the processes of elaborating, verbalizing, sharing, writing, and drawing, mixing concrete experiences with symbolic and abstract learning. Novelty and prediction are consistently used as a means of arousing students' curiosity, making them active participants in the learning process. As a result, students buy into the concepts presented and quickly develop the practice of using these skills in their daily lives, the benefits of which are immediate and far-reaching.
