This handbook provides an outline of the most fundamental theory of critical thinking. In addition, it provides ideas for incorporating the theory into the structure of the curriculum. Included is theory on the elements of reasoning, intellectual standards, intellectual traits, content as a mode of thinking, the affective dimension of thinking, along with structures for student self-assessment, grading policies, and general tactical/ structural recommendations. This handbook is useful for understanding the basic theory, as well as for developing a curriculum with critical thinking at its very foundation.
