  1. I’m glad you took the time to better understand the term critical thinking. Even though the dictionary you used doesn’t have that term, you can find definitions for it by doing a google search and reading a few of the top results. This is the perfect example of using a different resource to define a word or term, rather than a regular dictionary. I think we will all benefit from a more specific definition of critical thinking. You can edit this post–either by revising it or by adding to it. I look forward to reading your updated post!
