Thinkology - Accuracy Volume 2 (2 CD) from Kidsmart
Accuracy is Volume 2 of the award-winning Critical Thinking Skills program, which includes the animated instructional software program, and a comprehensive Curriculum Integration Guide which contains 39 Supplemental Activities plus coloring sheets.
Accuracy's software program contains two stories, each with 10 exercises, all focused on Accuracy in thinking and speaking. A cast of colorful characters works through a story which illustrates the concept of Accuracy, and then the student participates in one of the 10 interactive exercises which pose situations in which the student must select who is being accurate and who is not.
To quote from the Teacher's Manual: "To be accurate means to be free from errors, mistakes, or distortion. We want our students to be able to figure out when the information they are considering is accurate, whether a word is being used accurately, whether a word is spelled accuately, whether what someone says is accurate, whether what they read is accurate whether numbers are being manipulated and or understood accurately. Furthermore, we want students to be able to determine whether their interpretations are accurate, as well as whether another person is interpreting a situation or issue accurately...Am I accurate in what I am saying? Are the facts that I am using accurate? How do I know they are? How can I check to see whether they are?"
Thinkology - Accuracy Volume 2 is designed to be a springboard to accuracy in every curricular area. Its objective, from the teacher's perspective, is to help integrate critical thinking skills into the established classroom routine. That's why the Curriculum Integration Guide (a large part of the Teacher's Manual) was developed in such detail... to help with that task. Accuracy, and its two siblings (Clarity and Logic), are the perfect companions to the rest of your curriculum to help your students learn and apply Critical Thinking Skills to all of their learning experience in your classroom.
Plus, a 125-page Teacher's Guide with curriculum integration suggestions and dozens of off-line activities.
