Becoming a Critical Thinker stresses concrete and practical applications of critical thinking in everyday situations. The concise structure makes the text a useful supplement to any student success course, and its use of timely examples—from advertising, television, music, and the Internet—help students connect the skills outlined to their own lives.

The text is divided into a series of cumulative activities and includes exercises linked to further activities on the Web.

  • Chapter 4, Solving Problems, provides critical-thinking techniques that students can apply to school and life.
  • Thinking Critically About Research offers methods for assessing information.
  • Thinking Critically About Movies illustrates how the cinema is used as a tool for persuasion, and how students can analyze the messages within the context of a film.
