Additional Information About: Students Empowered Through Critical Thinking
Students who have completed their first critical thinking course describe to administrators the benefits they gained from the course and express their anger that they were deprived of critical thinking instruction for so many years. This tape is good for those interested in persuading others that students appreciate critical thinking instruction. Topics include: student attitudes toward traditional didactic instruction, naive assumptions administrators make about the level of instruction going on in their schools, critical thinking as a valuable job skill, and students’ desire for more critical thinking instruction.
