ABSTRACT
The article discusses how teachers can help students gain critical thinking (CT) skills in the U.S. High CT and low CT activities have been the focus of the growing body of literature in teacher education and were believed to influence teacher's interaction with learners. It has been affirmed that low advantage and high advantage learners have been motivated by teachers. High CT activities are ineffective for low advantage learners while low advantage learners need to have a remedial regimen. It has also been asserted that low-advantage learners are oftentimes afforded rigorous curriculum relative to their high-advantage counterparts.
