Being able to think critically will ensure all students to become a success in school and in life. Students will gain the ability to not only understand what they have read, but how to build upon that knowledge independently. Start off with an introduction to critical thinking skills, including why you need them. Then, learn how to stand out from the crowd by being your own person and thinking independently. Gain some organizational skills so you can stay on top of things. Learning to distinguish between facts and opinions is the first step to making an inference. Find out how to plan ahead and anticipate consequences. Know what kinds of questions critical thinkers will ask, and how they will lead to successfully solving a problem.
