Constant application of critical thinking and healthy scepticism, coupled with open-mindedness and empathy, will empower students to become educated individuals and constructive citizens.
Offered to all Year 1 students, this module develops critical thinkers and effective problem-solvers. Students will address complex problems relevant to Singapore and the wider society by applying critical thinking standards (CLEAR - clarity, logic, evidence, argument and rationality).
They first learn to examine claims by recognising cognitive biases and fallacies, and discerning the difference between real and fake articles by evaluating information
credibility. They then apply these skills using empirical methods to analyse problems and formulate evidencebased arguments. Finally, they harness their critical thinking skills to navigate complex problems and, by identifying leverage points, derive robust insights.
