Critical thinking is the ability to think clearly and rationally about what to do or
what to believe. It includes the ability to engage in reflective and independent
thinking. Someone with critical thinking skills is able to do the following :
understand the logical connections between ideas
identify, construct and evaluate arguments

According to “Walsh and Paul” Critical thinking skills into all aspects of
teacher preparation and train future teachers to be models of effective
5. School Education And
Including an inadequate knowledge base on
teaching critical thinking.
lack of consensus on methods of evaluating critical
conditions that require classroom management at
the expense of academic instruction.
lack of support for collaboration between liberal
arts and teacher education faculty.
6. Role Of Teacher To Develop Critical
Have a sound knowledge base from which to support students as they delve more
deeply into content.
Remain open to challenge by students, not representing themselves as the sole
source of knowledge.
Encourage students to look at the big picture by engaging them in critical-thinking
processes that have relevance beyond the classroom.
Be prepared to listen to voices that originate in the classroom and to use students'
personal experiences as starting points for gathering information.
Encourage students to question and challenge existing beliefs, structures, and
Provide opportunities for inquiry by giving students time for planning, processing,
Structure lessons so that students can work safely and co-operatively and develop
creative forms of shared response.
7. Critical Thinking And Sustainable
The role in personality development of the students
is considered along with the formation and
enhancing of critical thinking skills within the
modern personality-oriented approach.
Witness that sustainable development can not be
achieved solely through technology, political
regulation or financial mechanisms.
9. Climate Change
• The links between climate change and sustainable
development are strong .
• Climate changes are dragging the million of people into
• Global warming, sea level rise, melting of ice caps and
glaciers severe weather events, drought, flooding, these are
the climate changes which are affecting every
• Aspect of society and economic life.
• Society which is affected by these climate changes cannot
become sustainable society.
10. Climate Change
• Climate change is relevant to most university discipline as we seek not only
• These include engineering, architecture, urban planning, sociology, education,
psychology and many more .These discipline part in helping us manage and make
sense of our changing world.
• Students need critical thinking skills ,these skills include “reflecting on issues in a
structured way… [using] insight and logic”, drawing conclusions about solution of
issues to make the world better place to live.
• The met office, the bbc, nasa, the un and many environmental bodies have excellent
online resources on climate change, and a research project presents a good opportunity
for students to practice such skills .
Biodiversity is the collective term for the full variety of life on earth.
The sustainable development goal 15 of the 2030 agenda for Sustainable
development is devoted to “protect, restore and promote Sustainable use of
terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, Combat desertification, and
halt and reverse land degradation and Halt biodiversity loss”.
Biodiversity resources section include plants, decomposers, insects, fish,
Reptiles and amphibians, birds, and mammals.
Biodiversity resources are the pillars upon which we build civilizations. As a
result, our personal health, and the health of our economy and human society,
depends on the continuous supply of various ecological services that would be
extremely costly or impossible to replace.
Extinction is although a part of nature but we human
being can slow down Itby taking appropriate
measures. But this time, species are becoming extinct
rate many times faster, some scientists say 10,000
times faster-than ever before.
We can participate in biodiversity conservation by
increasing our knowledge of environmental issues,
increasing our awareness of the impacts of
biodiversity loss, and increasing support for
government policies and actions that conserve our
valuable ecosystems. We can become educators and
role models by aiding in the recovery of species at
risk and preventing other species from becoming at
As we know critical thinking is logical thinking and in a structured
way ,through critical thinking we can encourage student’s mind to
think different ideas to protect their environment to train their minds
we can ask questions :
How would you define threats to biodiversity?
How do threats get established?
What if new threats arrive?
What would you do to protect biodiversity?
Critical thinking skills help to do something good and new for
society. If we have these skills we would realize our duty as a citizen.
Poverty means not having enough money for basic needs such as food, drinking
water, shelter, or toilets.
Eradicating poverty in all its forms remains one of the greatest challenges . While
the number of people living in extreme poverty has dropped by more than half –
from 1.9 billion in 1990, to 836 million in 2015 – too many people are still
struggling to meet the most basic human needs.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a bold commitment to finish
what we started, and end poverty in all forms and dimensions by 2030. In order
to achieve the SDGs, we must target those living in vulnerable situations,
increasing access to basic resources and services, and support communities
affected by conflict and climate-related disasters. sustainable development can be
a potential solution to global poverty.
15. Education reduces poverty, boosts economic growth and increases income. It
increases a person's chances of having a healthy life, reduces maternal deaths,
and combats diseases such as HIV and AIDS. Education can promote gender
equality, reduce child marriage, and promote peace. In sum, education is one of
the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future.
Global Poverty—Critical Thinking and Taking Action,This course focuses on
world poverty, its causes and effects, and explores the global debate about how
best to alleviate it.University of California has introduced this course. Students
should leave this course with a better sense of the problems posed by global
poverty, be able to participate more effectively in the ongoing debates about
poverty alleviation as well as understand how they might personally engage in
efforts to reduce poverty.
16. Critical Thinking Questions
What effects do you think poverty has on individuals, families, and
How does poverty affect children?
Which approach to solving poverty do you think is the best? Why?
Teacher can encourage students to reflect what they think about these
questions and encourage them to play their part to remove poverty by
helping poors , donate your clothes to needy people, give some
Teacher can organize small event for donation in which all students
participate and realize their responsibility towards poors.
