From Students’ Perspective: Teaching Critical Thinking in an ELT Studies Course
Curr Res Educ (2016) 2(2), 84-98
The current study is a quantitative research that aims to throw light on the place of students’ views on teaching critical thinking (TCT from now on) in the field of foreign language teaching. Hence, the study investigates whether any significant correlation exists between the fourth year university students’ attitudes concerning TCT in terms of their individual differences and their achievement scores. In this sense, a case-specific attitude scale was also developed for the purpose of the study. The results juxtaposed with the previous findings in the literature indicate that TCT would serve new benefits for the interests of foreign language teaching.
