As a consequence of a pleasant Twitter thread over the weekend, I am currently revisiting two papers that have heavily influenced how I think about the idea of ‘critical thinking’. The two papers, by the same authors, are:
- Bailin, S., Case, R., Coombs, J.R. & Daniels, L.B., ‘Common misconceptions of critical thinking’, Journal of Curriculum Studies, 31.3, (1999a), pp.269-284
- Bailin, S., Case, R., Coombs, J.R. & Daniels, L.B., ‘Conceptualising critical thinking’, Journal of Curriculum Studies, 31.3, (1999b), pp.285-302
The sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed that these two papers appeared together in the same issue of the Journal of Curriculum Studies a good twenty years ago. They were both set as reading on my PGCE, and have shaped my views on the matter ever since. I am reliably informed that both can be accessed with Charted College of Teaching Membership.
What I particularly like about the two papers…
