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).

Getting Students Who Take Excellent Notes

Summary: Despite what we may assume, students do not all arrive on campus knowing how to take good notes. The Cornell note-taking system involves saving space on the left margin and at the bottom of a page. These spaces can be used to summarize and predict test questions about the content on that page.
