Video: Principles of Curiosity - Critical Thinking and Skepticism in the Classroom

Discussion created by Julie Fritsch on Aug 1, 2017

Science writer Brian Dunning has just released Principles of Curiosity, a free short film and lesson guide designed to teach students the fundamentals of critical thinking and deductive reasoning. Dunning has been working in the field of science communication for over a decade. His most popular work is the award-winning Skeptoid podcast, which boasts more than 100,000 weekly listeners and six books. Part of the film discusses the benefits of GMOs and was shot on location at a genetically modified sugar beet farm. The film's companion lesson guide is easy to follow and encourages student discussion.
