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).

Importance of Reflection in Science

The purpose of higher education is to produce citizens who can think independently.
In high school science, students often follow lab manuals with little understanding of what they are doing.
Reflection can prepare students to engage each other while they grapple with course material.
