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).

How I Use Learning Portfolios

Portfolios collect many assignments and reflections that accrue around a student-chosen theme.
At the end of the semester, an integrative reflection essay rounds out the portfolio.
Require students to turn in portfolios at least once early in the semester, so they cannot save all the portfolio work until the last minute.
