CCTS & Study Skills for Lesson Planning

   So far all the lesson plans that I've done require teachers to state the critical & creative thinking skills that will be implemented in the lesson.

   Below is a list of CCTS I got from my lecturer, as well as a list of study skills. I will edit and update if there are additions and changes. You may need to see where the skill are mentioned so you can read this entry to find out (click on the first picture). However there's no mention of study skills so if I post a lesson plan that has some, I'll put a link later.

Critical Thinking Skills
1.  Identifying characteristics
2.  Comparing and contrasting
3.  Grouping and categorising
4.  Sequencing
5.  Arranging in order of priority
6.  Analysing
7.  Identifying facts and opinions
8.  Evaluating
9.  Enhancing conclusions
10. Identifying causes and effects

Creative Thinking Skills
1.  Generating ideas
2.  Making associations
3.  Making inferences
4.  Making predictions
5.  Making hypotheses
6.  Synthesising (making generalisations)
7.  Creating mental pictures
8.  Drawing mental pictures
9.  Drawing analogies
10.  Creating metaphors

Study Skills
1.  Collecting & classifying information
2.  Translating information
3.  Analysing
4.  Synthesising
5.  Application

   I think there are different versions for this, but as I said I will update later when I find more. You can get the Bahasa Melayu version here.

   More to come in the days to come! Insya-Allah :)
