"Real Thinking for Real Life with Real Success"
For your classes in Critical Thinking, McGraw-Hill introduces the new edition of THiNK, from the acclaimed M Series. Critical Thinking begins by listening and we began THiNK by listening to and observing students and instructors. McGraw-Hill conducted extensive research to gain insight into students' studying and buying behavior, as well as instructor challenges. Students told us they wanted more portable texts with innovative visual appeal and content that is designed according to the way they learn. Instructors told us they wanted a way to engage their students without compromising on high quality content.
THiNK is critical thinking come to life. This innovative text provides instructors with scholarly yet succinct content on critical thinking and logical argumentation in a format that captivates students. With current examples, exercises, and applications, and powerful pedagogy that links concepts within and between chapters, THiNK directs students to make connections between skill development and application to their college studies, careers, and personal lives.
Imagine a class where students are actively and personally engaged in thinking critically while also discovering how to apply those thinking skills in everyday life. Now imagine those same students confidently participating in class, working efficiently through the exercises outside class, and performing better in the course. With Connect Critical Thinking, students can achieve this success. Connect Critical Thinking is a first: a learning program with pedagogical tools that are anchored in research on critical thinking.
More current, more portable, more captivating, a rigorous and innovative research foundation, plus Connect Critical Thinking adds up to: more learning. When you meet students where they are, you can take them where you want them to be.
