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).

Keeping Student Attention with Pacing and Memory Markers

To keep student attention, be prepared to change the direction and tone of your lecture in response to the energy level in the class. Find creative ways to link content material to students' experiences outside your classroom. Mark extremely important material with something novel, so that students will have a memory marker to help them retrieve it.
