Teach students how to think critically about the things that matter in their lives
Revel™ Becoming a Critical Thinker: A User-Friendly Manual trains students to become critical thinkers, thoughtful decision makers, and confident advocates for their beliefs. To this end, author Sherry Diestler guides readers to develop the skills they’ll need to successfully evaluate the many claims facing them as citizens, learners, consumers, and human beings — and to become effective advocates for their beliefs. In addition to updated examples, the 7th Edition offers coverage of engaging contemporary topics — such as how social media affects decision making and how marketers influence consumers — that will resonate with today’s students.
