Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking has been organized around Halpern's (2003) framework for teaching critical thinking skills across disciplines. According to this framework, well-rounded critical thinking instruction helps students acquire:

- a critical thinking attitude or habit of intellectual deliberation;
- individual intellectual skills like analysis and inference;
- the ability to use these skills in new contexts, and
- the ability to reflect upon and evaluate one's own thinking (metacognition).

Helping Students Think Like Your Field

Summary: Students arrive on campus focused on detail, not what's important for the "big picture."
It is very helpful to say to students "This is how a someone in my field would approach this problem."
