Critical Thinking in the Classroom

Stephen Downes, Half an Hour, Jun 08, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Scanned from my print archives, I wrote this article in 1993 for a presentation I did somewhere (probably in Northern Alberta). It is an overview of critical thinking, outlined from the perspective of its application in the classroom. Fifteen years later, as certain pundits maintain that there is no such discipline of critical thinking, I think that this paper can stand on its own merits as an argument - and a demonstration - to the contrary. Today's educators may also find it to be a valuable resource as well.
