What is Critical Thinking?
Critical thinking is a cognitive process of conceptualizing, analyzing, synthesizing, evaluating, and applying information that is processed from the environment, a past experience, prior knowledge, communication, and thoughts. This information is then use to determine a belief or action. As students get older, this skill becomes more and more important as they move into higher order ways of learning.
How Can Students Develop Critical Thinking Skills?
Helping students develop critical thinking skills is not as hard as you think if you use fun and engaging activities. It's also important to use multisensory materials to improve understanding and retention of new content. Part of the process involves the development of abstract thinking skills. You also want to use games to develop the understanding of concepts such as main ideas and details as well as inferences.
