Transcript of Critical Thinking/Reading
Ask yourself.. Is Black a color?
Critical reading is a technique for discovering information and ideas within a text.
What techniques could you use?
inspired by CSI
Black and white cats generated on a television.These colors are created by light.
The answers:1. Black is the absence of color (and is therefore not a color)
Explanation:When there is no light, everything is black. Test this out by going into a photographic dark room. There are no photons of light. In other words, there are no photons of colors.
2. White is the blending of all colors and is a color.
Explanation:Light appears colorless or white. Sunlight is white light that is composed of all the colors of the spectrum. A rainbow is proof. You can't see the colors of sunlight except when atmospheric conditions bend the light rays and create a rainbow. You can also use a prism to demonstrate this.
Fact: The sum of all the colors of light add up to white. This is additive color theory.
Becoming a critical reader and thinking critically
Reading is reasoning….
“What you see on the page sets your mind at work, collating, criticizing, interpreting, questioning, comprehending, comparing."
Critical thinking is a technique for evaluating information and ideas, for deciding what to accept and believe.
In actual practice, critical reading and critical thinking work together.
Critical thinking allows us to monitor our understanding as we read. If we sense that assertions are ridiculous or irresponsible (critical thinking), we examine the text more closely to test our understanding (critical reading).
Conversely, critical thinking depends on critical reading. You can think critically about a text (critical thinking), after all, only if you have understood it (critical reading).
Becoming a critical reader requires that you do more than comprehend the text; in order to read critically, you must:
Keep an open mind
Examine information and evidence
Examine an author’s reasoning
Reach a reasoned judgment
Apply new information
Requires that we evaluate the evidence in order to solve problems, build roads, write legislation, or design an advertising campaign.
We must evaluate what we have read and integrate that understanding with our prior understanding of the world. We must decide what to accept as true and useful.
