Need tools to help your students gain these skills?

Help your students develop critical thinking and writing skills, competencies essential for their study and future. Critical thinking is chosen as one of the 21st Century Skills.

We would like to introduce Rationale®, a program to structure thinking and writing skills. Rationale® is an educational program designed to guide students from basic brainstorming tasks toward evaluated reasoning and clear well-structured essays.

By making argument maps, you visually display and scaffold the thinking process. Argument maps allow teachers to monitor and assess students’ thinking processes.

Rationale’s argument mapping method is an intuitive format, designed to build critical thinking and writing skills in all subject areas. It acts as a pedagogical support for the development of critical thinking skills founded through five years of university research.

Rationale® is easy and fun to use.
Free teacher resources and educational materials are available.
