Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking

Critical thinking skills allow students to make appropriate and reasonable judgments, based on clear and rational observation and appropriate communication.

Students who demonstrate critical thinking skills are able to:

  • Make decisions that are ethical.
  • Provide valid evidence for why their decisions are sound and evaluate information to arrive at defensible conclusions.
  • Be open minded and flexible about changes to their decisions.
  • Differentiate between fact and opinion.
  • Acknowledge that things are not always “either/or” or “right or wrong.”
