I was expecting specific content ideas for improving critical thinking in students. However, I felt like this was more focused on classroom management and lesson planning. It didn’t address how to teach students to be critical thinkers.

General, generic. Nothing new or innovative. The only positive is that it gets you thinking about organization. I agree with cutting clutter out of lessons and the value of pre-preparation. This might help brand new teachers, but experienced teachers have been doing these main points already.

I loved it. Simple, strong, and critical thinking will happen.
