Critical Thinking

In response to the current information explosion, students must learn to assess and filter what they are hearing, reading, and seeing. Across the curriculum, we create opportunities for students to gather, assemble, organize, analyze, distill, and make sense of facts, data, and trends and learn to evaluate the validity of sources, especially online. We encourage them to discriminate between facts and points of view, and to logically defend and persuasively articulate their arguments and conclusions.
