Raising Critical Thinkers

How do we encourage independent, critical thought? Through creating access to books, not through teaching to a test. When rote learning is all we know, we will develop an impressive memory, but lack the capacity for creative thought. Teaching phonics over reading creates the ability to memorize words that sound the way they are spelled. Learning to read allows us to question what we are hearing, reading and seeing, and allows us to develop thoughts that can disrupt the norm. Investing in books and libraries is a great equalizer, and a step up to the life children deserve.
