Becoming a Critical Thinker course

Becoming a Critical Thinker is our 8-lesson course which introduces primary students to critical thinking, helps them to take ownership of the comparative concepts, and sets them on the ACT continuum pathway.

We’ll be adding the course at the end of 2024. In the meantime, check out our Thinking for Yourself course for middle years students to get some idea of the kind of content we’ll be providing.

Becoming a Critical Thinker is coming…

We’ll be adding the Becoming a Critical Thinker course to our ACT continuum of learning at the end of 2024. In the meantime, you can check out our course for middle years students, Thinking for Yourself, which can be adapted for your older primary learners.

The ACT/TOK teaching and learning pathway

Placing ACT at the heart of what we do creates a learning pathway represented by the diagram below. We begin with resources for primary learners (now being introduced), move onto the middle years resources which we update each month, and culminate in either our resources for the TOK course, or if your students are following a different educational programme (such as A-Levels or the AP), senior ACT resources.

All our resources are incredibly flexible, and can be plugged into any educational programme. Deliver our full-length ACT courses in timetabled lessons, run our mini-lessons in PSE classes, use our extension resources such as Investigating Issues to fill your EPQ or HPQ slots, or offer your students our ‘Knowledge Journeys’ in optional extension classes outside of the usual timetabled day – it’s entirely up to you.

Members have access to a huge range of ACT & TOK resources, including classroom-ready courses, TOK and ACT newsletters, TOK and ACT mini-lessons, Investigating Issues, TOK Padlets, 12 Key Concepts, and many more engaging, innovative resources!
