Teaching Critical Thinking: Analyzing, Learning, and Teaching Critical Thinking Skills.
Drake, James A.
This book discusses critical thinking--what it is, how it can be learned, and how it can be made a functional part of public school teaching. Part one, "A Concept of Critical Thinking," explores critical thinking and classroom teaching, as well as language, language usage, and definition, and provides a "range definition" of critical thinking. Part two, "Developing Critical Thinking Models," describes the analysis of concepts and terms, assertions, and arguments. Part three, "Critical Thinking for the Classroom," provides an overview of classroom teaching methods. A selected bibliography and self-study guide complete the volume. (KS)
