Teaching This Skill Critical thinking is the ability to apply reasoning and logic to new or unfamiliar ideas, opinions, and situations.
School systems in the US usually teach critical thinking from elementary school up through college-level courses. Teachers encourage students to learn through writing assignments and problem solving. For example, younger students might be asked how their lives would be different if they were born in another country or in a different time period. Such assignments push students to let go of what they know about the world around them, to better consider other perspectives and apply new ideas to their own lives. http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-critical-thinking.htmFlash Cards * Comenta con tu padre, (madre, hermano, vecino, etc) o profesor(a) el contenido de esta entrada, ya sea imágenes o texto.
