Critical Thinking: the basics

Critical Thinking: the basics

A simple introduction to Critical Thinking. It focuses on questioning in order to arrive at a theory. Using information about the mysteries surrounding the Nazca lines, in Peru, learners are asked to develop a theory which explains this phenomenon. It includes consideration of the existence of aliens as well as theories advanced by recognised experts in this area. There are inevitable light-hearted factors for this reason! The mantra here is to remain open-minded until you have the evidence to form an opinion, to challenge what you know and be prepared to investigate what you don’t. There are opportunities for further investigation and a presentation on the topic at the end of the session. This resource is part of THREE Critical Thinking resources. It could be used as part of a study skills activity. Ideally aimed at KS4 and beyond, though elements could be easily adapted for KS3 learners.

Critical Thinking: using logic

Critical Thinking: using logic

This is the third Critical Thinking resource and focuses on the need for logical reasoning. It establishes the concepts of the premise and conclusion as the basis of a logical argument. It also highlights 4 “logic traps” - the non sequitur, generalisation, assumption and irrelevance. These principles are applied to the legend of Atlantis as a light-hearted approach to creating a logical argument. There are opportunities to evaluate the logic of ‘experts’ who have written on this topic. This approach offers opportunities to conduct further independent study to do the same thing. (There are a lot of theories out there!). Finally, learners are challenged to create their own logical argument on the Atlantis legend. This resource could be used for KS4 learners and beyond, though it could be adapted for KS3 easily.

Critical Thinking: how to develop lines of enquiry

Critical Thinking: how to develop lines of enquiry

This Critical Thinking resource examines how to develop a line of enquiry. It is the second session in three separate Critical Thinking resources. It reinforces the need to challenge what we learn by asking questions which provide further information as well as to establish the validity of what has been discovered. It does this via 6 steps: Step 1: What do we know already? Step 2: Why is it important to the enquiry? Step 3: Who agrees with the theory? (and why?) Step 4: Who disagrees with the theory? (and why?) Step 5: What else do we need to investigate? Step 6: What do I believe? The resource uses a light-hearted approach by focusing on the mystery of the Loch Ness monster and examines the theories behind the legend. At the end, learners apply what has been learned to produce a presentation which outlines their theories. It’s suitable for KS4 and above, though could easily be adapted for KS3.
