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).

Think Sheets

Summary: For 30-40 pages of reading, assign one page of writing due the day of class discussion. This must not summarize or evaluate, but instead discuss what it made the students think about in their own lives. These are higher quality and fun to read and grade than traditional writing assignments.
