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).

Collaborative Editing

Summary: Using an overhead projector, many students can participate in peer editing at once. This can be done with a tablet computer or even transparency and marker. All identification should be removed from the paper being edited. At first, students can be shy about a new activity like this, but they warm up once they feel it is safe to learn from each other.
