During these times of fake news and free data, we often read people's posts or comments about wanting others to "practice critical thinking."
Critical thinking means not just accepting the information given to you, but also analyzing it, evaluating it, and asking questions, among many other things. And it's not just for when you read the news, listen to a politician speak, or defend an argument in school—it's applicable in making decisions, and many others, too!
To make it easier, we found this cheatsheet from Global Digital Citizen Foundation through National Geographic Education's Facebook post. Ask yourself these questions the next time you have a new discovery or learn about new info.
