As media are reflections of our collective values and character, they are also potentially significant in helping us shape and alter our individual views. Thus, we have provided links to some of the news, discourse and critique that contextualizes critical thinking in media as they alter and illuminate our times follows. Articles are of mixed quality and significance and we leave it to the reader to assess them.
We invite you to comment on each article, to rate each one using a scale of 0-5 "thinker's," and to post any chosen article to your ConneCT page as you wish.

Use the intellectual standards presented in the criteria corner to judge each article. Here are some questions to guide your thinking in judging the quality of the reasoning in each article:
  • To what degree is the article clear?
  • To what degree does the article include information that is accurate and relevant?
  • Is there sufficient information in the article to judge whether the position taken in the article is reasonable in context?
  • If the issue in the article is deep and complex, are the complexities properly dealt with?
  • If the issue is broad, entailing multiple viewpoints, are these points of view articulated and fairly treated?
  • Has any significant and relevant information been excluded that should have been included?
  • Has any relevant viewpoint been left out or distorted in the article?

In this section we bring to you many of the articles on critical thinking being generated online each day. We do not vouch for their quality. Many of these articles will suggest that critical thinking is being fostered in a given context, but we ask you to judge for yourself whether and to what degree this is true, based on the information and reasoning provided. Other articles will focus on the theory of critical thinking itself; again you will need to judge the quality of the theory, since there are many misconceptions of critical thinking in human societies. Some articles will argue against the very idea of critical thinking. Again you will need to be the judge.
