Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

Highly developed critical thinking skills are essential in order to confront the challenges of the future. Critical thinking is the ability to examine ideas and issues intelligently, to produce valid inferences from stated premises, and to apply the techniques of analysis and syntheses. Problem solving focuses thinking on a particular issue or concern.


The course Discovering America challenges you to think analytically and to solve problems emerging from the social, historical, and cultural events in America.
