Do your students really understand a chapter after they have read it? Can they accurately tell its purpose, the main questions it raises, and the conclusions it draws? For teachers who want their students to learn to think more critically, one question dominates: How can I teach critical thinking within my subject matter? Learning to Think Things Through: A Guide to Critical Thinking Across the Curriculum provides the answers to these and many more questions.
The main goal of the text is to show how critical thinking can help students comprehend any subject so they can see the parts in terms of the whole, to become active learners rather than passive recipients of information. Learning to Think Things Through gives students a written guide to critical thinking that is clear, short, inexpensive, accessible, and shows readers how to think through any problem or question.
"This text stacks up very well against its competition because it is concise. The difficulty in choosing texts on critical thinking is that they are either too complicated, do not offer enough coverage, or use a particular discipline to explicate critical thinking. What makes this text effective is that it is easy to work with and applicable to any and all disciplines."
