Helping Students Think Critically

I liked this study, which shows that students will think critically if educated as to what it means to "think critically."

Along with instruction on collaboration (if I expect students to collaborate), I will also lead off my classes with instruction on critical thinking--as I will certainly expect my students to think critcally.
