Critical Thinking for EfM Students

One of the ways for students to get as much as possible out of their reading is to read the text materials critically. The following list presents some simple ideas of how one might look at the readings with more discernment. There are more links on the Mentors page about Critical Thinking. Just click on the Mentors link at the bottom of this page.

Book Opening

  • Decide what you think, and why you think it. Writing out your initial ideas may clarify your thoughts.
  • Seek other views and more evidence. Make sure you examine all sides of the material presented, especially those that are contrary to your ideas. Talk to people who have expertise in the topic.
  • Evaluate the various views. Construct a chart with points that are in agreement and those that are in disagreement. Then compare this with your initial view.
  • Construct the most reasonable view. Your challenge is to develop a response you consider the most reasonable. Often this will be a combination of the information you have researched and your initial ideas.
