Wang Presents on Critical Thinking at Conference

On November 9, 2012, Danhua Wang presented at the 45th annual conference of the College Learning and Reading Association.

Wang’s presentation consisted of three parts. First, she outlined the conceptual development of critical thinking since the turn of the 20th century, bringing the audience to notice the multiperspective characteristics of the concept of critical thinking.

Second, she reviewed nine textbooks that aimed to improve college freshmen’s critical thinking skills, reflecting the influence of the concept development on the definition and skill selection in the textbooks.

Third, she introduced an easily administered critical thinking test and analyzed the test results for her developmental studies students.

Her presentation ended with some thoughtful questions for the attending reading instructors to address collectively.
