Critical thinking in education

Critical thinking for students

Students don’t need to know what to think, they need to know how to think. That means dedicated classes on how to evaluate arguments, analyze evidence, ask questions, and reflect on meaning - core critical thinking skills.

In 2008, Canadian researcher Philip Abrami analyzed 117 studies into how to teach critical thinking effectively. The conclusion was very clear. Critical thinking skills develop students’ ability to learn more in all subjects. The best way to equip students with such skills is to have a critical thinking class on the timetable, as well as to teach it through all the curriculum subjects.
