Critical Thinking in a World of Accelerating Change and Complexity
Elder, Linda; Paul, Richard
Social Education, v72 n7 p388-391 Nov-Dec 2008
This article focuses on two important critical thinking conceptual sets--the analysis and assessment of thought. The authors aim to identify ways in which teachers can develop thinking skills among their students in classroom interaction and through their responses to students' written work. The authors present the kinds of questions teachers can ask to advance student thinking skills. With enough practice, these questions will eventually come naturally to students, moving them further along the road to thinking clearly and reasonably about major issues.
