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).

Generating Many Solutions to One Problem

Summary: Students often must be told that most problems can have more than one solution. Encourage brainstorming to extreme lengths, in order to stimulate creativity. Require students to work individually first, so they all bring something unique to the conversation when they come together.
