Professor of Education Charles Temple was recently a guest blogger on Psychology Today’s “Raising Readers, Writers and Spellers.” The blog’s author Richard Gentry introduces Temple:
“Charlie, my friend and colleague for 30 years and today’s guest blogger, shares success stories from teachers around the globe and valuable tips for teaching critical thinking in schools. Readers may also find some advice for politicians about thinking grounded in intellectual integrity and fair-mindedness. “
Temple’s entry is titled, “Lifting the Political and Economic Fog-Seeing Two Sides of an Issue,” and discusses the Reading and Writing for Critical Thinking Project (RWCT), of which he is a co-founder, and his experiences in trying to promote the teaching of critical thinking.
Temple received his B.A. in English from the University of North Carolina, and his M.Ed. in curriculum studies and his Ph.D in reading education from the University of Virginia. He also taught at the University of Houston-Victoria. Temple is also the author and co-author of numerous books. In addition to his teaching duties at HWS, Temple recently co-founded and directs the Reading and Writing for Critical Thinking (RWCT) Project, in association with the International Reading Association.
