Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Moore and Parker’s Critical Thinking is not about critical thinking as much as it is a text in critical thinking. It provides guided practice through hundreds of exercises and examples, to help students apply content and think critically themselves. With an enjoyable, concise reading style and a visually clear layout, Critical Thinking trains students to improve information acquisition skills, recognize dubious claims, and hone critically important skills.

The authors’ expanded coverage on how to recognize dubious claims is gravely applicable in the current climate of fake news, deep fakes, and AI-created information. The authors provide guided practice in what instructors say are the most important critical thinking skill sets for students.
