Discovery Learning Fosters Critical Thinking

Friday Jun. 2, 2017

Scientific evidence supports discovery learning as one of the primary keys to developing critical thinking skills in children. Showing professional video footage of her teaching a group of five to seven-year-olds, Jessica Hulcy, demonstrates how easy it is for parents to employ discovery techniques allowing them to break out of the “tell and regurgitate” rut so many parents find themselves locked into. Critical thinking techniques can and should be applied at all levels of learning and in all subjects to produce thinking adults.
