CRITICAL THINKING: An Introduction.

“My students do not know how to think critically.” This common lament can be heard from teachers on campuses around the nation. Many students come to college having little experience with higher-level thinking skills. They are used to repeating or spitting back information. But when students are asked to apply or evaluate information teachers are often met with blank stares.

Amy, Steve, and Robb have developed this practical compilation, Engaging Activities for Critical Thinking, as an indispensable, hands-on resource for educators to address the topic of critical thinking. This booklet will empower teachers, professional development coordinators, coaches, and administrators with tools to actively engage in their classes. They are confident you will find these activities as useful as they have with their students.

Engaging Activities every educator can use for…CRITICAL THINKING! Each activity contains:

· Purpose of the activity: Goal for the activity

· Objective of the activity: Learning Objectives are provided as to what students will be able to do upon completion

· Time needed to complete the activity: Estimated time that the activity and discussion thereafter will take

· Resources required to complete the activity: What you will need to complete the activity

· Procedures or steps to complete the activity: Guided walk through of the activity

· Additional Readings / Resources: Recommendations for appropriate books and articles

· Activity work sheets: Where students apply the activity components

If you like this NSSI® Booklet on Engaging Activities for Critical Thinking, you will love the series: Academic Success, Retention, Active Learning, Understanding the Culture of College, and Motivation.

Robert M. Sherfield, Ph.D has been teaching public speaking, theatre, and student success and working with first-year orientation programs for over 25 years. Currently, he is a professor at the College of Southern Nevada, teaching student success, technical writing, public speaking, and drama.

An award-winning educator, Robb was named Educator of the Year at the College of Southern Nevada. He twice received the Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award from the University of South Carolina Union, and has received numerous other awards and nominations for outstanding classroom instruction and advisement.

Robb’s extensive work with student success programs includes experience with the design and implementation of these programs—including one program that was presented at the International Conference on the First-Year Experience in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. He has conducted faculty development keynotes and workshops at over 250 institutions of higher education across America. He has spoken in all 50 states and several foreign countries.

Robb’s interest in student success began with his own first year in college. Low SAT scores and a low high school ranking denied him entrance into college. With the help of a success program, Robb was granted entrance into college, and went on to earn five college degrees, including a doctorate. He has always been interested in the social, academic, and cultural development of stud ents, and sees this book as his way to contribute to the positive development of first-year students across the nation.
