Brain Builders: Teaching Critical Thinking In Jordan

Commitment by

Think Unlimited

In 2012, Think Unlimited committed to train 168 Jordanian public school teachers to implement ongoing afterschool interventions that build achievement motivation, critical thinking skills, and creativity in high school students. These interventions aim to equip and empower a rising generation of Arab youth to become proactive citizens, social entrepreneurs, and change-makers in their home communities, their nations, and the world. Through participation in a 12-week afterschool program called 'Brain Builders,' students will learn and practice core cognitive skills including: acquiring information, organizing information, reasoning, strategy, decision making, opinion formation, perspective taking, and creativity.
