Critical Thinking Skills: Definitions, Implications for Implementation.
Young, Lynne E.
NASSP Bulletin, v76 n548 p47-54 Dec 1992

A primary barrier is teachers' orientation toward covering or dispensing knowledge, rather than working with it. The current teacher-dominated format must change to a more student-centered approach with interactive learning opportunities. (15 references) (MLH)
