Way, Wendy L.
Journal of Vocational Home Economics Education, v7 n1 p1-9 Spr 1989
Examines the assumptions, potential contributions, and limitations of the empirical/analytical approach to knowledge construction. Three broad goals are suggested for critical thinking research in home economics education: (1) development of appropriate definitions; (2) development of generalizations about the use of thinking skills in home economics; and (3) construction of theories regarding the application of thinking skills to family concerns.
