About this deal

Critical Thinking Skills is an excellent textbook for anyone looking to brush up on, or developing key critical analysis skills. These resources are designed to support teaching and learning when using this textbook and are available at no extra cost. Especially recommended for university students, particularly at the start of their undergraduate degree as it is vitally important to develop these critical skills before reaching your final year and have to complete your dissertation. Personally, the only valuable information I got from the book was a review of what critical thinking is and a step by step guide to be able to put them into practice better.

One skill that many people today are lacking is the ability to assess situations and objectively develop solutions that can fix the issue at the same time, not to the detriment of another.I bought this book in preparation for uni and it has been very helpful in 'reading between the lines' and clarifying strong and weak arguments. All used books might have various degrees of writing, highliting and wear and tear and possibly be an ex-library with the usual stickers and stamps. It's so simple to understand as the author breaks down the language of critical thinking and puts it in a way that makes sense! Stella was formerly Director of Lifelong Learning at the University of Leeds, and Pro Vice-Chancellor for Learning and Teaching at the University of East London. Finally, it triggered me to explore the subject of critical thinking more broadly, by referring to similar books.

But then, sometimes it is imperative to get through the rudiments of a subject - to develop deeper insights into the subject. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees.The book is also just as firm and sound with the development of writing skills, and though this rating is not my best writing; please do not let get past you as this book is an excellent, excellent purchase. Filled with helpful activities and tried-and-tested tools, this bestselling book shows readers how to construct effective arguments, improve critical analysis, and hone reflective thinking skills. In fact, it is very essential to teach learners at undergraduate level CTS along with other language skills such as Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. A complex subject is broken down into easy to understand blocks, with clear explanations, good examples, and plenty of activities to develop understanding at each stage.

I read this for my Commentary of texts class and, even though it has provided me with more information, I thought it would be more centered in the analysis of literary texts, which is not. The book does often include more words than are necessary, but it's easy enough to skip over those parts. Its great that the chapters give you the possibility of doing a few exercises to practice the skills, however there is very little novelty in the book. This book helped me immensely with my critical thinking skills, so much so I can see the benefits in other parts of my education. Once purchased, you can view your eBook through the Kortext app, available to download for Windows, Android and iOS devices.This assignment will also assess the application of critical thinking to different situations as well as assessment instruments that can be used to measure critical thinking.

Written by Stella Cottrell, leader in the field with over one million book sales to date, this text breaks down a complex subject into easily understood blocks, providing easy-to-follow, step-by-step explanations and practice activities to develop understanding and practise your skills at each stage. A little bit disappointed with product as it was in a worse shape than described by seller, so I would have paid a little less, but I will try and get new edition of this one.

Finding and evaluating sources of evidence -- Critical reading and note-making: critical selection, interpretation and noting of source material -- Critical, analytical writing: critical thinking when writing -- Where's the analysis? As a university student, this book was recommended to me by my lecturer, so it came highly praised and it has certainly lived up to it! The book is an instructive source for those who want to ameliorate their writing skills ( for eg, writing an essay) in analytical ways. Our donations to The Rainbow Centre have helped provide an education and a safe haven to hundreds of children who live in appalling conditions. Language and thinking are unique abilities of human beings that separate them from other living things.

Once you have downloaded the app, your eBook will be available on your Kortext digital bookshelf and can even be downloaded to view offline anytime, anywhere, helping you learn without limits. The only chapters that were useful to me were 1,2,10,12 and I didn't find all the pages useful, only a couple from each chapter.
