Description


Critical thinking is the essential tool for ensuring that students fulfill their promise. But, in reality, critical thinking is still a luxury good, and students with the greatest potential are too often challenged the least. Thinking Like a Lawyer:

  • Introduces a powerful but practical framework to close the critical thinking gap.
  • Gives teachers the tools and knowledge to teach critical thinking to all students.
  • Helps students adopt the skills, habits, and mindsets of lawyers.
  • Empowers students to tackle 21st-century problems.
  • Teaches students how to compete in a rapidly changing global marketplace.

Colin Seale, a teacher-turned-attorney-turned-education-innovator and founder of thinkLaw, uses his unique experience to introduce a wide variety of concrete instructional strategies and examples that teachers can use in all grade levels and subject areas. Individual chapters address underachievement, the value of nuance, evidence-based reasoning, social-emotional learning, equitable education, and leveraging families to close the critical thinking gap.
