Tutor description

The course, Critical and Creative Thinking taught by Manuel Durazo has provided me a firm foundational understanding of what defines thinking, specifically critical thinking. Critical thinking goes beyond the brain devising an idea or thought. An individual uses critical thinking during the judgment phase of thinking. Ruggiero (2012) states that “the mind examines and evaluates what it has produced, makes its judgments, and, where appropriate, adds refinements.”

Critical Thinking ReviewCritical Thinking ReviewHUM/111The course, Critical and Creative Thinking taught by Manuel Durazo has provided me a firm foundational understanding of what defines thinking, specifically critical thinking. Critical thinking goes beyond the brain devising an idea or thought. An individual uses critical thinking during the judgment phase of thinking. Ruggiero (2012) states that "the mind examines and evaluates what it has produced, makes its judgments, and, where appropriate, adds refinements."At the beginning of this course we were challenged to read an article by Linda Elder and Richard Paul, "Critical Thinking: A Stage Theory of Critical Thinking." This reading described the theory behind strategies of improving one's critical thinking skills. Elder and Paul described critical thinking as an ability that should be evaluated and can be honed with effort and practice. They describe six stages of critical thinking that begins with an "unreflective" thinker or, non-critical thinker, and ends with the individual being described as a "master thinker." (Elder & Paul, 1996).As a class we were challenged by Instructor Durazo
