Critical Judgment. Activity Guide.
Acton, Karen; Griffith, Judy
Designed for a minimum amount of teacher supervision, this guide consists of introductory practice and evaluative activities for teaching secondary school students about critical judgment. A sample grade ladder and calendar help students self-schedule and keep track of their grade and points. The activity unit is preceded by a teacher rationale, unit objectives, and related vocabulary terms. The activity guide provides 15 student worksheets on topics such as misinterpreting observations, understanding the language of advertising, making generalizations, understanding prejudice, making choices, considering authority and context, and making inferences. The theme throughout the unit is that students must become aware of the difference between statements of fact and statements of opinion so that they may recognize the basis upon which judgements are made. This document is part of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center project. (LH)
