Five Intellectual Tools for Critical Thinking

Discover the five intellectual tools that critical thinkers use when considering what to believe or how to behave when faced with a challenging situation.  

Students in higher education need to be critical thinkers. We offer you five learning modules to help you gain a deeper understanding of what critical thinking is and when to use it.  You will learn how to organize your thoughts, ask constructive questions and develop the strong problem solving skills needed to complete academic work at the University of Toronto. 

These modules were developed through a collaboration between the Academic Success Centre at the University of Toronto and The Critical Thinking Consortium.
