Critical thinking

Module Overview

Originated by Prof. Sebastian Veselik

Critical Thinking is the objective analysis of facts to form a judgment. This is a complex and multi-faceted topic, and there are several different areas of work which generally include the rational, sceptical, unbiased analysis or evaluation of factual evidence. This module aims to support young people to think critically by being aware of the values of others, cultural judgements, taking things on trust and asking pertinent questions. By building critical thinking into their everyday life, young people can make more balanced and appropriate choices and decisions and create a more rounded life experience.

We will explore

  • What is critical thinking?
  • What does a critical thinker do?
  • Looking at facts versus opinions
  • How can critical thinking help you?
  • What critical thinking is not!

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts worksheet
  • Reflection of thoughts worksheet
  • Teacher assessment
  • James’s critical blunder animation

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
