Authors:  Linda Elder and Richard Paul
The primary goal of education is to develop and cultivate the intellect. To cultivate the intellect requires developing intellectual skills, tools of mind that enable the thinker to reason well through any question or issue, to think through complexities and confusions, to empathize with competing viewpoints and world views. It requires, in short, the tools of critical thinking. Developing the intellect also presupposes the ability to read closely and write substantively. And it entails understanding the intimate connection between close reading, substantive writing, and critical thinking.
When we have a rigorous conception of critical thinking clearly in mind, we can develop an approach to reading, writing, and thinking that then seamlessly leads to competency standards for close reading and substantive writing, as well as performance indicators and outcomes based on critical thinking principles. The outcome measures clarify the kinds of classroom activities relevant to teaching students to read, write, and learn well.
Thus the general approach we recommend incorporates a systematic use of critical thinking concepts interconnected with reading and writing strategies in the design of instruction.
