Lisanne Ophoff Posted about 1 year ago Would reforming the core curriculum to include a Metacognition class and a Critical Thinking class be effective in education? It would be a good thing if these subjects were part of everyone's education. There's just one small problem: not everybody has te potential to learn these things. And even those who do have the potential, don't always want to. So I think we should introduce these classes to the curriculum, but we shouldn't make people attend them. Such classes would have to be very different from ordinary classes. The teacher could give some pointers, but every student would have to figure our for themselves how exactly they want to do this. If a student want to learn how to be critical, let them chose for themselves what they want to criticize. It would be a great oppurtunity to let students learn what they want to learn.
