Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking | Common Core Oklahoma |
I am interested in this post and post on critical thinking. Is critical thinking a skill?  Can one teach critical thinking? Stephen has delivered the course on Critical Literacies MOOC in the past....


Robert H. Ennis, Author of The Cornell Critical Thinking Tests
“Critical thinking is reasonable, reflective thinking that is focused on deciding what to believe and do.”


Assuming that critical thinking is reasonable reflective thinking focused on deciding what to believe or do, a critical thinker:


1. Is open-minded and mindful of alternatives
2. Tries to be well-informed
3. Judges well the credibility of sources
4. Identifies conclusions, reasons, and assumptions
5. Judges well the quality of an argument, including the acceptability of its reasons, assumptions, and evidence
6. Can well develop and defend a reasonable position
7. Asks appropriate clarifying questions
8. Formulates plausible hypotheses; plans experiments well
9. Defines terms in a way appropriate for the context
10. Draws conclusions when warranted, but with caution
11. Integrates all items in this list when deciding what to believe or do


What are the principles of critical thinking?


- Knowledge is acquired only through thinking, reasoning, and questioning. Knowledge is based on facts.

- It is only from learning how to think that you learn what to think.

- Critical thinking is an organized and systematic process used to judge the effectiveness of an argument.

- Critical thinking is a search for meaning.

- Critical thinking is a skill that can be learned.

- Do the above principles hold true and won’t change from one domain to the next?

Definitely a skill to master!

Chris Carter's curator insight, July 1, 9:53 PM

Both nature and nurture is my experience, in that nature provides the potential but the skill remains under-developed without nurturing. 

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, July 4, 11:54 PM

An interesting post on critical thinking.  The post debates whether critical thinking is a skill or whether it can be taught.....also contains a couple of videos.

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning | Common Core Oklahoma |

The label of “21st Century learning” is vague, and is an idea that we here at TeachThought like to take a swing at as often as possible, including:


 –weighing the magic of technology with its incredible cost and complexity


–underscoring the potential for well thought-out instructional design


–considering the considerable potential of social media platforms against its apparent divergence from academic learning


Some educators seek out the ideal of a 21st century learning environment constantly, while others prefer that we lose the phrase altogether, insisting that learning hasn’t changed, and good learning looks the same whether it’s the 12th or 21st century.


At TeachThought, we tend towards the tech-infused model, but do spend time exploring the limits and challenges of technology, the impact of rapid technology change, and carefully considering important questions before diving in head-first. 


The following take on 21st century learning developed by TeachThought is notable here because of the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the “classic” approach to “good learning” than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore.


The size of the circles on the map are intended to convey priority.
