Help your students develop a critical mindset with this practical guide. Becoming a Critical Thinker begins by unpicking where knowledge comes from before showing students how to recognise biases and approach evidence objectively. Subsequent chapters equip students with the tools to evaluate different sources of information, critique the literature and write persuasive, critical arguments of their own. A final chapter explores the value of critical thinking in the workplace. Throughout, real-world examples illustrate the value of critical thinking in both academia and everyday life, and activities allow students to put new skills into practice.Becoming a Critical Thinker is an essential introduction to critical thinking for undergraduates of all subject areas.
