Critical Thinking and Science Education.
Byrne, Michael S.; Johnstone, Alex H.
Studies in Higher Education, v12 n3 p325-39 1987
A discussion of the development of critical-mindedness through science education looks at scientific attitudes and the stereotype of the objective, detached scientist. It argues that critical-mindedness depends on cognitive and affective inputs as well as critical thinking ability and proposes a concept of scientific critical-mindedness and objectives for its attainment.
