Critical Thinking Map for the Classroom : infographics
You ask any teacher today about the skills they want their students to develop and you will get critical thinking skills as an obvious answer; of course together with other skills.
With the advance of technology and the educational paradigmatic shift that ensued , critical thinking skills have occupied a central part in the literature of teaching and learning pedagogy, not that these skills were not important before but I would say they came to the foreground now more than in any time before.

The Holistic Critical Thinking Scoring Rubric (HCTSR)
http://www.insightassessment.com/HCTSR.html
The Holistic Critical Thinking Scoring Rubric (HCTSR) has been discussed at numerous critical thinking workshops and conference presentations. The use of the rubric by students and faculty facilitates understanding of critical thinking, the use of the language of thinking, and focus on the skills and habits of mind that characterize a person who uses reasoned judgment to problem solve and to make decisions about what to do or what to believe.
The HCTSR supports multi-modal assessment, for it provides evaluators with descriptors of four levels -- two positive and two negative -- where in they can categorize the critical thinking evident to them in projects, portfolios, presentations, essays, etc. and the like.

Critical Thinking On The Web

Critical Thinking On The Web
This site aims to gather in one place links to all the most useful critical thinking resources on the web. It certainly doesn't even try to link to every critical thinking-related page - just the ones that, in my opinion, are reasonable quality and worth a visit.
The site is biased towards university or college-level critical thinking, and also towards informal reasoning, since these are my own starting points. However I've tried to be ecumenical and to include anything of value, including resources relevant to K-12 education.
