Middle Schoolers Engage in Critical Thinking Exercise

In Collegiate School Learning Specialist Mary Margaret Ryan’s Language Strategies class, students worked this week on a critical thinking/reading activity with Upper School and Middle School STEAM coordinator Dan Bartels. Using an old game program, students asked a computer questions and put together clues to tour a house, all the while avoiding certain challenges along the way. The exercise, said Mrs. Ryan, was a way, “to reinforce strategies that promote collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and the importance of following directions.”
