Toward a Theory of the Development and Improvement of Critical Thinking Skills in a Classroom in English.
Bibb, Thomas Clifford
This study explained and interpreted differing views of critical thinking skills as they may apply to teaching strategies in a classroom in English and investigated various categorizations of English instructional strategies so those strategies could be related to various notions of developing and improving critical thinking skills. "Reaction-English," a conceptual schema of critical thinking skills that happen in a classroom, was developed. "Reaction-English" presents methods, procedures, and strategies for teaching critical thinking skills in junior high school, senior high school, and college. Attention is devoted to specific strategies and suggestions for teaching the several phases of critical thinking skills in an English classroom. Critical thinking consists not only of learning and applying the several phases of skills, but also of a critical perception of classroom interactions between the student and the teacher. The role played by the teacher can be adequately described only in relation to the roles played by the students as evidenced in the conceptual schema. (Author/RB)
