We are thrilled to let you know that Robbins Hebrew Academy (RHA) has been awarded the L.B. Daniels Award from the Critical Thinking Consortium. The Critical Thinking Consortium (TC2) is an internationally renowned, non-profit association of education professionals who are committed to promoting critical thinking from primary to post-secondary education through professional development and research.
According to Usha James, executive director of TC2, RHA is being recognized for its deep commitment to professional learning and its singular focus on creating thinking classrooms. From JK to grade 8 and in every subject from Hebrew studies to physical education, from math to visual arts RHA is transforming teaching and learning by nurturing thinking.
RHA has a clear vision: To produce the next generation of original thinkers who lead life with courage and compassion. This recognition makes evident that we are on track.
LeRoi B. Daniels is a founding member of TC2 and an author of the model of critical thinking that forms the foundation of the Consortium's work. TC2 created this award to honour Dr. Daniels' contribution to the understanding and implementation of critical thinking throughout his career. The award recognizes exemplary service in the promotion of critical thinking.
We are very proud that RHA has won this award. Thank you to all the teachers who have so diligently integrated critical thinking into their daily lessons.
Extraordinary things happen at RHA!
