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).

Cause and Effect Perspective

Summary: Ask students to write creatively from the point of view of someone in a situation involving concepts from your discipline. Tapping creative energies can help students intuitively understand cause-and-effect situations. Students can make connections clear to each other in ways that might not occur to us as faculty members.
