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).

Modeling Flexibility of Thought for Your Students

Summary: Model open-mindedness by acknowledging when you have not come to a conclusion yet yourself. To allow for students to develop in class, cover fewer things but in greater depth. Negotiating your syllabus with your students to give them a sense of investment and stimulate in them a desire for inquiry.
