Critical and creative thinking

In this subject, students extend and apply their critical and creative thinking by, for example:

  • creating and connecting ideas using text, imagery, analogy, and symbolism
  • imagining new possibilities and solutions for religious, cultural, and societal issues, designed to contribute to social justice and the common good
  • drawing conclusions from evidence, viewpoints, reasoning, argument, and expression, as a basis for advocacy, outreach, service learning, and other critical action
  • using metacognition to rationalise decisions, hypothesise, analyse thought processes, and justify evaluations.
