Critical Thinking

Instructions: Follow the tabs to improve your reading comprehension and language development.

Critical thinking enables you to analyse and assess independently the information you read in scholarly journals and books. It is crucial if you are to draw on these sources in your own research. Unless you are able to examine critically the research that others carry out, you will not be able to make informed judgements of your own. The critical thinking skills you apply in examining the work of others can also be applied to your own work to ensure it is robust and based on sound arguments.
