Critical Thinking Skills

Critical Thinking Skills are taught through a systematic progression of lessons using the Primary Education Thinking Skills program. Students explore a variety of thinking skills with six animal characters. Each grade level "spirals up" as students strengthen and deepen their use of these skills.

Students work on multi-disciplinary projects during the course of the year. Some of the projects come from the Texas Performance Standards Project - a set of project resources for G/T teachers and students that allow students to create professional quality work in alignment with the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students. Students use research and communication skills as they work on topics requiring the integration of reading, math, science, and/or social studies.
