AbstractQatar is in the midst of a massive systemic education reform Education For a New Era. A key aspect of the reform is the expectation of teachers to develop students’ critical thinking skills. In this paper, an open-ended questionnaire and follow-up interviews revealed several aspects of critical thinking including how it is defined and taught, where in the curriculum does critical thinking flourish, and challenges and limitations of the teaching of critical thinking from the perspectives of social studies teachers in preparatory and secondary Qatari independent schools.
