Game Changer: Christ-Centered Critical Thinking Skills is curriculum written to teach students the skills they need to approach their thought processes from a biblical and Christ-centered approach. Students will learn to collect data, analyze data, search for the truth, and think for themselves with the Bible as their guide. Students are bombarded with information, much of which is inaccurate, misleading, and even hurtful. This curriculum is designed to teach students to think critically and make wise decisions based on evidence.

Students will learn through The Five R’s as they:
Receive information,
Research information,
Restructure their thinking based on the new information,
Respond to the information, and
Reflect on the experience.

These five critical steps will help students learn to:

  • think independently
  • consult the Bible for guidance
  • work collaboratively
  • conduct practical research
  • collect data
  • analyze data
  • understand themselves
  • learn problem-solving strategies
  • respond appropriately
  • pray for discernment
  • resolve conflict
  • learn Christ-centered social norms
  • listen to others point of view
  • practice acceptable social media etiquette
  • make wise decisions based on evidence
  • practice reflective thinking

Both the teacher’s edition and the consumable student workbook are presented using a step-by-step approach. Both are printed in full color and are spiral bound for an attractive and functional presentation.
