The Basics of Critical Thinking
The Basics of Critical Thinking is one of our favorite books from The Critical Thinking Co. This workbook’s color illustrations, engaging storylines, and clear explanations teach your student how to think. He'll learn about common argument forms and practice the important skill of identifying and evaluating evidence. The Basics of Critical Thinking teaches such a vital skill that your student just might find that it's the part of this year’s schoolwork that he uses most throughout the rest of his life. Plus, he will have such a blast completing it!

Although this book teaches common argument forms, its primary focus is identifying and evaluating evidence – the very basis of critical thinking. Most propaganda, advertising schemes, legal trickery, and bad science are not the result of complex arguments; they are the result of half-truths and simple arguments. The Basics of Critical Thinking utilizes an engaging, yet far from juvenile, approach to provide your student with the tools to see through such false arguments. Appropriate for students as young as 4th grade and up through 9th grade.
