Critical Thinking

Critical thinking gets much lip service, but is typically not actively reflected in instructional and learning processes. Part of the challenge is acknowledging that for many of us, we are more adept at rationalizing than being rational. Cold, hard logic is almost unattainable. Emotional intelligence steps in and distorts or balances our thinking.

Reasoning and Real-Life Decision Making provides a valuable perspective on the importance of critical thinking (and links to resources of interest to educators): "If we don't examine how we arrive at decisions, then we will make more mistakes and be more we susceptible to being misled by others. Reason is not infallible, nor is it the only guide to decision making, but it is a tool to use in every job we do."
