This concise, effective guide is designed to help students learn to think critically in any subject-matter. Learning to Think Things Through presents a combination of instruction and exercises that shows the reader how to become active learners rather than passive recipients of information, use critical thinking to more fully appreciate the power of the discipline they are studying, to see its connections to other fields and to their day-to-day lives, and to maintain an overview of the field so they can see the parts in terms of the whole. The model of critical thinking (used throughout the book) is in terms of the elements of reasoning, standards, and critical thinking processes. This model is well-suited to thinking through any problem or question. The 4th edition reflects streamlined writing, with changes and substantial edits on virtually every page.

About Gerald M. Nosich

Dr. Gerald Nosich is a Professor at Buffalo State College and Professor Emeritus at the University of New Orleans. He has given more than 250 national and international workshops on all aspects of teaching for critical thinking. He has also worked for the U.S. Department of Education on a project for a National Assessment of Higher Order Thinking Skills, served as the Assistant Director at the Center for Critical Thinking at Sonoma State University, and been featured as a Noted Scholar at the University of British Columbia. On a more personal note, he has at times exercised and not exercised good judgment: he has ridden a motorcycle alone to the ziggurat of Ur in Iraq- has worked as an immigrant ditch-digger in Switzerland- been imprisoned by Communist authorities in Czechoslovakia- stowed away on a Sicilian ship to Algeria- sailed up the Nile with his family in a felucca- lived with Maasai warriors in central Africa- and traveled across the Sahara to Timbuktu. He is a Hurricane Katrina refugee and lives far from future hurricanes in Buffalo, New York.
