Given the consistent call for and appreciation of the need for critical thinking in education, closer examination of leading approaches shows this curriculum is diverse in its framing, its definition, its goals, and in classroom implementation. Yet, critical thinking remains important for higher order thinking skills and tools to be effective decision makers. Hubert does a meta analysis of critical thinking definitions and implementation across the globe finding common ground and best practice in critical thinking education leading towards the current framework of Active Citizenship. How to implement it effectively remains in question and Hubert begins to outline differences and proposes a path forward to advance the research around this topic.
