Chapter 1: Think Your Way to Career Success                                                             


Critical thinking has emerged as the top workplace skill - in high demand and short supply.  Becoming a good thinker is a workplace necessity and a competitive advantage for the job seeker.  Using an engaging model, students learn how motivation (dreams & goals), emotion (feelings) and cognition (thinking) work together to drive successful workplace behavior.  The importance of clear goals and balancing thinking and feelings is emphasized.


Chapter 2: A New Way of Thinking                                                                                  


Students learn and apply a practical 5-step model of critical thinking (which includes Pearson’s RED model).  Examples emphasize workplace readiness and professionalism.  Through engaging stories, students learn meta-cognitive, reflective, and analytical skills. 

·         Stop and Think

·         Recognize Assumptions

·         Evaluate Information

·         Draw Conclusions

·         Plan of Action                             


Chapter 3: Your Thinking Style                                                                                        


To personalize and deepen the learning experience, students take an on-line thinking style assessment (less than 10 minutes to complete) and receive a feedback report.  They learn which styles are their strongest and how to leverage those styles to achieve workplace success. The seven thinking styles are based on the literature of positive dispositions of critical thinking.


Chapter 4: You’re On Your Way                                                                           


Practical tips are offered to help students start practicing and applying critical thinking skills to achieve career success.
