Product description

Review

"I was unhappy with a lot of the critical thinking texts out there, and after some careful shopping I chose Vaughn and MacDonald's The Power of Critical Thinking. My students were almost universal in their appreciation for the text's layout, appearance, and understandable treatment of complex
concepts. I found that students had a better knowledge of the major concepts, and they scored exceptionally well on the mid-term examination. The mid-term average went up by 14 per cent over past years using another text/test combo. My students learned the staple concepts of critical thinking and
actually said they enjoyed it! In my experience, critical thinking courses can be intimidating, sometimes even profoundly negative experiences for students. I strongly recommend The Power of Critical Thinking as an effective tool for guiding students through this terrain." -- Ken Kirkwood,
University of Western Ontario
