Critical thinking is an elusive concept because it isn't about anything concrete or content oriented. Critical thinking is a way of looking at the world, forming questions, and answering them. Because of their intangible nature, critical-thinking skills can be difficult to teach. The /cthink Web site is a great place for ideas about how to encourage the development of critical-thinking skills in students. The site includes K to 12- and university-level sections, each with its own set of resources and library of articles. Teachers will find this site a great resource!
