Expanding Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is ability to read, learn and comprehend. It is one of education’s most central goals and one of its most valued outcomes. Fundamentally, critical thinking is just exercising the general forms of thought most conducive to sorting the true from the false – or, more bluntly, “the art of being right.” These skills include the ability to evaluate and interpret experiments, draw conclusions from data, make predictions, and identify assumptions. For enhancing this skill teachers are being trained to make the pupil Identify, Define, Enumerate, Analyze, List, and Self-Correct themselves through different activities.
