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).

Reasoning through Value Conflicts

Summary: In a case with conflict, ask students to identify what conflicting values are in play.
Having identified the values, ask them to identify situational reasons for why one value might take priority.
Ask them what about the situation would have to change for value priorities to change.
