What Activities and Assignments Promote Critical Thinking?

Learn 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.

Learn how and where to inject critical thinking into your courses

Critical thinking skills are important components of learning in nearly every discipline. College students expect to hone these skills so they’re 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. The fragmented literature compounds the challenge by failing to explain how to teach it—what activities to do in class and what types of assignments to give.

What Activities and Assignments Promote Critical Thinking? distills from the literature principles for teaching critical thinking, and identifies the type of content thatis suitable, possible critical thinking learning outcomes, and specific activities and assignments that foster critical thinking.

Linda B. Nilson, founding director of the Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation at Clemson University and a faculty development director for more than 25 years, provides questions designed to help you create a core strategy to grow your students’ critical thinking skills, identify critical thinking content, and adapt your courses accordingly.

Choose this Magna 20-Minute Mentor to gain a clearer and deeper understanding of critical thinking and practical strategies in order to teach it in your courses.

This program is also available in the Critical Thinking Skills 4 Pack.
