Critical ThinkingeBook - 2011
In reflective problem solving and thoughtful decision making using critical thinking one considers evidence, the context of judgement, the relevant criteria for making the judgement well, the applicable methods or techniques for forming the judgement, and the applicable theoretical constructs for understanding the problem and the question at hand. In this book, the authors present topical research in the study of critical thinking. Topics discussed include developing critical thinking through probability models; the promotion of critical thinking skills through argument mapping; an instructional model for teacher training in critical thinking; and, advanced academic literacy and critical thinking and critical thinking and higher education. -- Preface.
