Critical thinking (CT) helps one to view the world accurately, encourages lifelong learning, and to seek answers to problems that are well reasoned, accurate, and fair-minded. This presentation helps reduce concerns teachers have that teaching CT compromises instructional content that emphasizes the mastery of academic standards. Middle school through college teachers receive an overview of CT reasoning, assessment criteria, student and teacher disposition, and example strategies about how to incorporate CT into their course competencies.
