Critical Thinking Skills 4 Pack

Learn to design and develop a discipline-based course with a critical-thinking focus. Examine the critical-thinking landscape, review the best scholarship, and apply these principles to your teaching.

Overview

It’s all about that moment when a student not only masters the textbook but also learns to think beyond it.

Critical thinking skills are important components of learning in nearly every discipline; college students expect to hone these skills so they will be ready for the workforce or graduate school.

Yet instructors often find it difficult to figure out how to teach critical thinking; they might think they are teaching it when in reality, they are not. Moreover, the fragmented literature compounds the challenge by failing to explain how to teach critical thinking, that is, what activities to do in class and what types of assignments to give.

Fortunately, the new Critical Thinking 4 Pack disseminates all of this information and presents you with concise video programs that provide immediate strategies and exercises you can use to boost critical thinking in your courses.

The following 20-Minute Mentors are included in this pack:

  • How Can I Design Critical Thinking into My Course?
    Identify both general and discipline-specific critical thinking skills and how to turn these skills into good student learning outcomes. Learn to define critical thinking when designing or redesigning courses and to identify the type of content that is conducive to practicing critical thinking.
  • What Activities and Assignments Promote Critical Thinking?
    Explore how to create a discipline-specific strategy to grow your students’ critical thinking skills, identify critical thinking content, and adapt your courses accordingly. This program will give you a clearer and deeper understanding of critical thinking and how to teach it in your courses.
  • How Can I Assess Critical Thinking with Objective Items?
    Learn how to assess critical thinking skills using an assortment of methods, such as true/false, matching, multiple choice, and multiple true/false tests. Receive step-by-step instruction in designing objective items to assess particular cognitive operations in critical thinking skills for a wide range of disciplines.
  • How Can I Assess Critical Thinking with Student-Created Work?
    This program provides you with a portfolio of guidelines for assignments that test student-constructed responses. You will learn the keys to defining learning goals, creating assignments, and drafting rubrics to boost and measure critical thinking outcomes.

Individually, these programs sell for $99 each. By purchasing the 4-pack, you will save nearly $100.

Educators need to be clear about defining critical thinking and purposeful in designing the activities and assignments that will be used to promote its development. This series of programs will bring the concept of critical thinking into focus and provide actionable steps to help you design, promote, and assess it.
