Critical Thinking: the ability to think using analysis, synthesis, evaluation, problem solving, judgment, and the creative process.

Key Indicators:

CPCC offers a wide range of classes that will help students sharpen critical thinking skills. Take a class that will help you to train your mind to think clearly such as Introduction to Logic - PHI230 or Critical Thinking - HUM115

All of the classes I teach at the two community colleges where I am employed are writing classes. I am often saddled with the dreaded Freshman Composition course, the infamous English 101 that all of you college grads had to take whether you liked it or not. You probably didn''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''t; neither did I when I was an 18-year-old frosh. So I can sympathize with the elephantine ambivalence that my students carry, at least initially, into my classroom.

So I try to make my courses more than just a series of how-to sessions about comma placement, subordinate clauses, and present participial phrases. I inject the concept of critical thinking: the idea that any claim we are presented with, whether it be the whitening capability of a certain toothpaste or the existence of God, should be met with a healthy dose of skepticism. How strong is the evidence supporting the claim? Perhaps the claim has no evidence at all to support it. If that''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s the case, why is it believed?


Studying the following articles and pages will help you build a stronger understanding of the core concepts in critical thinking

In addition to the basic review of the definition and concept of critical thinking , the following pages and articles are recommended reading for the college, university or pre-collegiate student.

According to our recent “Student Engagement Insights” survey of over three thousand college students, 99% of students believe critical thinking is an important skill for them to learn in the classroom. Additionally, 92% believe what they learn in class sharpens their critical thinking skills for the “real world.” Terrific! But how many instructors and institutions find room for teaching it in their curriculum?

In a similar survey, 83% of instructors reported teaching critical thinking in their classrooms. While the majority of instructors do touch on critical thinking, many instructors still do not cover these types of lessons, despite the high value students place on them.

I remember taking a critical thinking class in college. Logic exercises are good, but what I found was to focus on fallacies. Especially logical fallacies. For example: 12% of all auto crashes involve drugs or alcohol. This statistic would probably be used to disuade people from drinking and driving. What people fail to think about is that means that 88% of all auto accidents are caused by people who are stone cold sober. This is meant more as a joke, because drinking and driving is stupid. but here s another hypothetical example (cause I can t find the actualy statistics right now): In the U.S. every year there are 350,000 violent crimes involving guns versus 100,000 violen crimes involving guns in the UK. Therefore if we outlaw guns, the number of violent crimes involving guns will go down. What they fail to keep in mind is that the population of the US greatly exceeds the population of the UK. Plus even the police in the UK aren t armed with guns, so when the police are faced with a gun, they do what everyone else does. RUN! http://www.justfacts.com/guncontrol.asp http://www.tinyvital.com/blog/2003/7/26/american-vs-european-crime-rates/ are a couple of interesting articles talking about crime statistics and gun related crimes. But those are what helped me be more critical about the way I was thinking. I tried to listen to the statistic, find out who s quoting it, and what their motivation is, then think of the other side of the arguement.

You’ve done some of it anyway. The remarks about reversing things at least indicates that to me. Critical thinking has a lot to do with being able to.
