Can You Teach Critical Thinking?
Why can’t they see what I see?
Can be taught in a classroom setting.
Requires carefully orchestrated lesson plans and evaluation
You can teach maxims of how someone ought to think, but without background knowledge and practice, they will not be able to apply the advice they memorized.
