In this book, Jennifer Moon explores and clarifies critical thinking and provides practical guidance for improving student learning and supporting the teaching process.

Key themes covered include:

  • different views of and approaches to critical thinking with an emphasis on a practical basis that can be translated into use in the classroom.
  • links between learning, thinking and writing
  • the place of critical thinking alongside other academic activities such as reflective learning and argument
  • critical thinking and assessment, class environments, staff knowledge and development, writing tasks and oral tasks.

Teachers in all disciplines in post-compulsory education will find this approach to defining and improving students’ critical thinking skills invaluable.

Review:

Jenny Moon has skilfully mapped the landscape of critical thinking with academic diligence and practical acuity. Using the concept of ‘academic assertiveness’, she reveals how particular emotional and psychological orientations and behaviours better enable learners to manage the challenges to self when progressing critical thinking capacities in academic, professional and social contexts. Through the reliable voice of the author’s own experiences, readers are introduced to a useful array of resources, activities and ideas designed to promote active engagement, augment cultural and contextual knowing and enhance the potential of learners to think and act critically.
