I have recently returned from Singapore where I worked with teachers in high schools, junior colleges, and polytechnics. As usual, there was considerable enthusiasm for critical thinking amongst them, with a high degree of interest in looking at how it can be infused into the curriculum. The magazine that I produce for upper primary students (‘Think!’) is now out there amongst the schools. (Issue 02 will be sent out this month.)
