Promoting Creative and Critical Thinking Skills in College Biology.
Lawson, Anton E.
Bioscene, v27 n1 p13-24 Mar 2001
Presents a model of creative and critical thinking in which analogical reasoning is used to link planes of thought and generate ideas that are then tested by employing an "if/and/then" pattern of reasoning. Presents data suggesting that such thinking skills develop first in familiar and observable contexts before they can be used in less familiar and unobservable contexts. (Author/SAH)
