Using “Conspiracy Theories” to Teach Critical Thinking

Rather than being afraid to touch taboo topics, wouldn’t it be feasible to encourage your children (and yourself) to independently research them and see what they discover? Critical thinking isn’t something that can be taught using worksheets. Now more than ever is the perfect time to give your kids firsthand experience in being autodidactic learners.

I'm Shelly, a Christ-following, homeschooling Mom of eleven children ( okay, not ALL children. My oldest is 23.) I met my husband right after graduation, and we've been together ever since. Though my life can be hectic at times... okay, ALL the time, I wouldn't change it for anything.

  1. Shelly, I really appreciate this headline and the approach taken!! You have covered this very tactfully. I have gotten quite a few ideas from you in the past and I want to thank you for that. I think that I will add a critical thinking subject class for him with varying “conspiracy idea” topics, age appropriate of course. Amen, Sister!! Keep up the fine work!! All the best to you and your family!!
