Critical Thinking Concept Reconstructed
Minter, Mary Kennedy
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v3 n8 p33-42 Aug 2010
This paper explores the proposition that teaching of critical thinking (CT) should include: (1) identifying and addressing the many environmental variables acting as barriers to our human thinking, i.e., an open system approach, and (2) utilizing the interrelatedness of the CT building blocks, i.e., creative thinking techniques, levels of learning, hierarchy of human needs, classic problem solving processes, and classic logical reasoning.
