Session Summary

Critical Thinking:  Think Like A Lawyer

Topic Overview: 

Transforming The Workforce with the Power of Critical Thinking

Surveys of employers typically reveal that they prize workers with the ability to think critically and problem solve, but too many workers lack these skills because they were never given the opportunity to practice them in a school system that emphasizes rote memorization and teaching to the test. Join Colin Seale, founder and CEO of thinkLaw, to explore how to foster a workplace culture of critical thinking in order to drive organizational effectiveness and employee fulfillment and success.


Colin Seale

Colin Seale was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, where struggles in his upbringing gave birth to his passion for educational equity. Tracked early into gifted and talented programs, Colin was afforded opportunities his neighborhood peers were not. Using lessons from his experience as a math teacher, later as an attorney, and now as a keynote speaker, contributor to Forbes, The 74, Edutopia and Education Post and author of Thinking Like a Lawyer: A Framework for Teaching Critical Thinking to All Students (Prufrock Press, 2020) and Tangible Equity: A Guide for Leveraging Student Identity, Culture, and Power to Unlock Excellence In and Beyond the Classroom (Routledge, available spring 2022), Colin founded thinkLaw (www.thinklaw.us), a multi-award-winning organization to help educators leverage inquiry-based instructional strategies to close the critical thinking gap and ensure they teach and reach all students, regardless of race, zip code or what side of the poverty line they are born into. When he’s not serving as the world’s most fervent critical thinking advocate or tweeting from @ColinESeale, Colin proudly serves as the world’s greatest entertainer to his two young children.
