Unlocking the Mystery of Critical Thinking

Unlocking the Mystery of Critical Thinking | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
Critical thinking. We all endorse it. We all want our students to do it. And we claim to teach it. But do we? Do we even understand and agree what it means to think critically?

According to Paul and Elder’s (2013a) survey findings, most faculty don’t know what critical thinking is or how to teach it. Unless faculty explicitly and intentionally design their courses to build their students’ critical thinking skills and receive training in how to teach them, their students do not improve their ski

The challenge with projects can be getting students to go into depth, think critically about their research - its relevance and the conclusions they draw and apply to the project. Some probing questions in this article to help.

Useful insights - particularly that critical thinking skills can't develop in a knowledge vacuum.

Despite almost universal agreement that critical thinking needs to be taught in college, now perhaps more than ever before, there is much less agreement on definitions and dimensions.

Correction: "Critical thinking is thinking about thinking, while your're thinking, in order to make your thinking better." should be credited to Richard Paul.

Richard Paul: Socratic Questioning Series [Part 1] - YouTube

Discourse on critical thinking for teachers and educators in all grade levels and in all societies. This channel contains video footage, interviews and clips...


Dennis T OConnor's insight:

One of my Critical Thinking Gurus is Richard Paul.  I met him in a bar in Arizona a few years before I left the classroom to teach online. We had one of the great discussions of my life. His thinking and teaching transformed my questioning style when I was a classroom teacher and seeped into my DNA when I went into online work.  Here is a series of videos available on YouTube that I would turn to if I were teaching a class devoted solely to Critical Thinking.

'Asking questions that takes thinking apart'! This is very useful as a reflection tool. I appreciate highly the connection made by Richard Paul between thinking and content.
