Critical and Creative Thinking

Resources

Curriculum area-specific resources have been developed to support teachers implementing the curriculum, organised by 'Help me plan', 'Help me find a teaching resource' and 'Help me assess'.

Overview of Critical and Creative Thinking

Critical and Creative Thinking fosters logical, strategic, flexible and adventurous thinking in students and a reflective self-awareness in managing thinking and thinking processes. Every curriculum area in the Victorian Curriculum: F–10 contributes to the development of a holistic critical and creative thinker; however the Critical and Creative Thinking curriculum itself describes discrete content and achievement standards that are not replicated in other learning areas.

The Victorian Curriculum Critical and Creative Thinking is organised into three inter-related strands: Questions and Possibilities, Reasoning and Meta-Cognition.

The Critical and Creative Thinking curriculum can be viewed on the Victorian Curriculum F–10 website
