Our Critical Thinking Skill intervention program is ideal for students who may be proficient in logical reasoning but have not mastered reasoning skills to the point where applying them is automatic. These students may need extra help with learning new concepts, understanding written instructions, reading comprehension and the mechanics of writing.
Critical Thinking Skills starts with oral language and teaches deductions, inductions, analogies, vocabulary, and inferences. The next level expands into basic evidence, contradictions, classifications, economic rules, and more vocabulary. Writing skills such as paragraph-writing, essay-writing and following both written and oral directions, are added.
The more advanced level emphasizes life skills, reading for information, analyzing arguments, and higher-order reasoning.
These skills are critical for successful completion of most college entrance exams.
