Specific Critical Thinking/Critical Reading Objectives:

  • Students will develop metacognitive awareness in order to identify and solve comprehension problems.
  • Students will accurately identify and explain the hierarchy of critical thinking. (Bloom’s Taxonomy)
  • Students will demonstrate increased facility, range, and persistence as readers by utilizing such strategies as identifying and annotating for key ideas and supporting information, by building cognitive routines such as asking questions of the text, working in collaborative relationships with peers about the reading process and comprehension, and building their knowledge of reading as a discipline and an integral part of academic, career, and civic success.
  • Students will explain how and why critical thinking/reading is necessary in academic and non-academic contexts.
  • Students will demonstrate development as a CT and analyze and evaluate problems/strengths of individual critical thinking in general and specifically for college level reading comprehension.
  • Students will demonstrate CT in coursework contexts such as reading graphics, complex rubrics, test/essay prompts, and by identifying traditional patterns in reading (cause/effect, comparison/contrast, definition, exemplification, etc.).
  • Students will identify CT concepts presented in most textbooks: bias, fact/opinion, propaganda, logical fallacy, deductive/inductive reasoning, inference, connotation/denotation.
