Life provides the challenge. Problems to solve and situations that require us to think things through, look at evidence, and evaluate what's going on are not just inevitable, they are ideal. Our job as teachers is to equip our kids to rise to the occasion.

The ability to solve problems creatively spans content areas and grade levels. In this course, you'll explore tools and strategies to support students as they solve a variety of problems and develop the skills to do so. You'll also observe schools that have intentionally put critical thinking front and center in the curriculum, and find concrete approaches to try yourself.

As always, you can choose to complete an AOK that translates into curriculum you can use with your very own students. You'll earn a badge that shows you can apply techniques and approaches in your learning environment that empower students to tackle challenges, in school and beyond.
