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).

Drawing Students into an Ethical Case

Summary: Ethical dilemmas occur when two "rights" oppose each other. Even coming to a common identification of an ethical problem can be quite difficult. Students come to class with an accutely developed sense of "fair play." Leverage this sensibility to begin discussion by asking student who in a given case is being treated unfairly.
