1. size up the situation. Know what is happening as well as what is not happening is essential. 2. Debate the alternatives. So far so good. All ideas are not equal. [ So often successful projects are the result of genuine collaboration where people build on each others? ideas and contribution so that the net result is a synthesis, not the product of a single mind. Debating alternatives takes time but it is so necessary. 3. Reflect on the process. If there is one area of critical thinking that is overlooked, it is reflection. No one seems to have time for it. Reflection need not be saved for outcomes; it is often wise to evaluate the process as it applies to progress.

Critical thinking involves the use of a group of interconnected skills to analyze, creatively integrate, and evaluate what you read and hear. [ To become a critical thinker you must be able to decide whether an author’s opinions are true or false, whether he or she has adequately defended those ideas, whether certain recommendations are practical, as well as whether particular solutions will be effective. 1. Critical Thinking Dispositions Critical thinking involves certain dispositions. A disposition is a tendency to act or think in a certain way. Review the list of dispositions that are characteristic of critical thinkers. 2. Critical Thinking Skills To learn how to think critically, one must learn skills that build upon each other. Only by concentrating on and practicing these basic skills can mastery of critical thinking be achieved. The author lists three basic characteristics of the skills required to think critically: they are interconnected (review a sample list of these skills), they build on each other, and they are goal-oriented in that we can constantly apply them to situations in everyday life. 3. Characteristics of Critical Thinking Critical thinking involves the use of a kind of thinking called reasoning, in which we construct and/or evaluate reasons to support beliefs. Critical thinking also involves reflection — the examination and evaluation of our own and others’ thoughts and ideas. Finally critical thinking is practical. Actions are more rational if they are based on beliefs that we take to be justified. Critical thinking then, is the careful, deliberate determination of whether we should accept, reject or suspend judgement about the truth of a claim or a recommendation to act in a certain way.

Knowing the intended audience allows the message being communicated in the writing to be more personalized or more intended to provoke the interest of the reader. This in turn channels the purpose and the content into specific directions.
