Tom’s book continues to be a real hit with both undergraduate and postgraduate students. This book immerses students into the world of critical thinking using practical applications and experiences. The book triggers a meaningful sensemaking process and demystifies critical reading, thinking and reading, allowing students to develop their skills.
Tom has a knack for providing relatable examples to break down the ideas around being a critical reader and writer. This second edition is no different and continues to carefully guide us all with developing our skills of criticality. A must read for anyone engaged with academic writing.
i bought a copy; it is a very good bock
Very appropriate book for undergraduate students. It takes students through how they can structure their essays with relevant arguments and analysis independently.
This will be used for the students this academic year. It is a great text to help develop their cognitive skills as the students transition through their learning and degree.
This books is likely to help students who are willing to work but tend to lose direction.
All groups at Level 6 essential to support level 6 writing
I love the style of presentation, key points are emphasised and repeated, I feel it will engage visual learners very much. the book brings the learner on a journey of deepening their understanding of the various elements of critical thinking.
Useful for contemporary university media students. Critical thinking is a major learning outcome for my postgraduate students.
Promotes critical thinking and supports the development of this academic skill for students from Level 4 onwards. Marking criteria focuses on critical thinking skills for students across all assessments and this is often a skill students struggle with understanding the 'how to'. This is a useful resource to signpost students to.
Clearly written, excellent coverage of critical thinking but also covers other academic skills. Very comprehensive
Tom Chatfield presents an extensive and comprehensive but engaging text on developing critical thinking. This text can be applied at all levels of Further and Higher education programmes, irrelevant if prior knowledge. Th end of chapter exercises are are very effective in revisiting and reinforcing learning on a continuous basis.
