Relevant Intellectual Traits Some Implications for Instruction Due to space limitations, we have made no attempt to be exhaustive with respect to any stage, nor to answer the many questions that might be raised concerning the development, reliability or validity of the stages.
The basic intention is to provide a practical organizer for teachers interested in using a conceptual map to guide student thinking through developmental stages in the process of becoming critical thinkers. Once the stages are explained, and stage-specific recommendations are given, we close with some global implications for instruction.
We make the following assumptions: Before moving to the stages themselves, a brief overview of what we mean by critical thinking is in order. Our working definition is as follows: We define critical thinking as: It is important to recognize that on this view, persons are critical thinkers, in the fullest sense of the term, only if they display this ability and disposition in all, or most, of the dimensions of their lives e.
We exclude from our concept of the critical thinker those who think critically in only one dimension of their lives.
The stages we will lay out are as follows: The Unreflective Thinker Stage Three: The Beginning Thinker Stage Four: The Practicing Thinker Stage Five: The Advanced Thinker Stage Six: The Accomplished Thinker Stage One: The Unreflective Thinker Defining Feature: Unreflective thinkers are largely unaware of the determining role that thinking is playing in their lives and of the many ways that problems in thinking are causing problems in their lives.
Unreflective thinkers lack the ability to explicitly assess their thinking and improve it thereby. Unreflective thinkers lack the knowledge that high quality thinking requires regular practice in taking thinking apart, accurately assessing it, and actively improving it. In fact, unreflective thinkers are largely unaware of thinking as such, hence fail to recognize thinking as involving concepts, assumptions, inferences, implications, points of view, etc.
Unreflective thinkers are largely unaware of the appropriate standards for the assessment of thinking: Unreflective thinkers may have developed a variety of skills in thinking without being aware of them. However, these skills are inconsistently applied because of the lack of self-monitoring of thought.Stages of Critical Thinking HUM/ Version 4 1 University of Phoenix Material Stages of Critical Thinking Complete the matrix by identifying the six stages of critical thinking, describing how to move from each stage to the next, and listing obstacles you may %(13).
Before moving to the stages themselves, a brief overview of what we mean by critical thinking is in order. Our working definition is as follows: We define critical thinking as: the ability and disposition to improve one’s thinking by systematically subjecting it to intellectual self-assessment.

Students acquiring a second language progress through five predictable stages. Effective ELL instruction Reflects students' stages of language acquisition.; Helps students move through the language acquisition levels.; Engages ELLs at all stages of language acquisition in higher-level thinking activities.
