About this product
- DescriptionA critical approach to reading and writing is expected from all students in health and social care courses. However, students often find this one of the more difficult aspects. This book sets about correcting the problem, and it does so in a step by step fashion by using relevant examples, learning activities and highlighting key information. It encourages readers to think and evaluate written material for themselves, and t to take every piece of literature as Gospel. The book is very well written and laid out. It uses plain English and relies on very little on jargon, therefore making it very readable. I will definitely use it going into my course and would have hesitation recommending it to course tutors and peers. Cor Hamilton, Student Nurse, Queen's University Belfast, UK Ever struggled to write a critical essay? Ever wondered what critical thinking actually is and how you can apply it in your academic work and your practice?

Each chapter tackles a different aspect of the process and shows you how it's done using examples and simple language. The book begins with a broad overview of critical thinking before building in subsequent chapters to discuss specific areas including: How to think critically about different types of information as potential evidence How to demonstrate critical thinking in written work and presentations How to adopt critical thinking in practiceTools including 'six questions to trigger critical thinking' and 'questions for critical thinking in practice' will assist you in developing the skills to help you in both academic work and practice.
