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).

Living an Ethical Case - Tragedy of the Classroom

Summary: Give students a choice between 3 or 10 extra credit points on the final exam.
For every person who chooses 10, everyone in class loses one-quarter point. It is the additive effect which hurts.
Give students opportunities to re-make the decision, paralleling modern-day resource and climate negotiations.
