Why Teach Critical Thinking
In fact, it can be said that critical thinking is judgmental in nature. It is interesting to note that critical thinking is selective too.
Critical thinking is not about being negative. The term critical comes from the Greek word kritikos meaning discerning.
So critical thinking is a deeper kind of thinking in which we do not take things for granted but question, analyse and evaluate what we read, hear, say, or write.
Unlike in the case of Creative thinking, Critical thinking adopts a much more rigid position. One of the features of Critical thinking is that it is not so expansive like creative thinking.
