Critical thinking is thinking in depth. When you are using critical thinking, you are evaluating, figuring out if claims are true, somewhat true, false or somewhat false.

I learned how helpful being able to be critical when thinking can truly be and how big of a difference it can make with several different types of situations. You use critical thinking for class assignments, everyday decision making, work related situations and more. For example, I have a six year old son and along with parenting comes a lot of decision making. I always want to make sure I made wise decisions so being able to think critically allows me to evaluate my options or just about the situation itself.

I would use critical thinking to make sure I am educated about the material in a detailed manner which will not only allow me to have an opinion but be able to explain it to others to help them understand my point of view. Before this course, I did use critical thinking but in a more everyday life way. After learning more about critical thinking, I feel more confident in the work I turn in and the material I learn because I’m using critical thinking more with my work and have seen much better results in doing so.
