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).

The Importance of Personalizing Critical Thinking

Summary: Overtly ask students to connect what has mattered for others to what matters for them. Making this connection can give them confidence (and a dose of rebellion) to fuel independent thinking.
