Critical thinking has become a fashionable term: classes of all kinds seem to include critical thinking, for example. It has become more important in an era of “fake news”.
In this class, we’ll look at critical thinking actually means – what it is, how we use it, and when we use it. Importantly, we’ll look at both what it can and cannot do.
We’ll start by looking at the news media, and we will also analyse TED talks, as well as other materials, to help us understand the critical thinking process.
Students will review material either provided by the teacher, or chosen by other students.
