Abstract

This Critical Challenge in Science unit is designed to engage students in critical thinking skills about Science Technology Society and Environment (STSE) issues. It is designed for the Science Five curriculum in British Columbia, specifically the Natural Resources unit. This action research project involved students constructing knowledge through experience and then applying that knowledge to answer critical thinking questions about the environment. The central goal of this project was to increase students use and application of critical thinking skills. This unit also revealed the power of the action research process, particularly the benefits of reflection that lead to new action.
