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).

Letting Students Choose their own Problem Solving Inquiry

Summary: Let students motivate themselves by choosing problems that are important to them, and often personal problems. Help them understand that having one good idea is not "solving a problem." Our job is to push students further into understanding the problem, generating many solutions, and determining which solutions are best.
