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).

Helping Students Contextualize Their Opinions

Summary: Acknowledge to students that their opinions are understandable, given their own unique experiences.
Help them understand other people have had different experiences, and therefore have different opinions.
Asking students how they think these differences might be handled helps them understand the conflict as complex, and not just argue for their side.
