What is Critical Thinking?

da Vinci is thinking critically!

Critical thinking plays a fundamental role in making any choice, from choosing the correct answer from multiple choices on an exam question to making major life decisions such as choosing a spouse. A child taught to think critically is a child far less likely to make poor choices that are harmful to one's self or to others. A child taught to think critically can accurately predict the possible outcomes of his actions.

The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.—Leonardo da Vinci

To teach a child critical thinking skills, you do not give him facts to memorize. Instead, you train a child to ask questions, seek alternative answers, try hypotheses, and consider other viewpoints. Critical thinking helps a child formulate the right questions, assess possible answers, judge the credibility of information and sources, and make solid judgments based on the evidence.
