      • What is critical thinking? How can we help students improve it? What role can linguists and linguistics play? I have been collaborating with researchers and teachers in philosophy who specialize in improving critical thinking skills to address these questions. More recently, I have started a colaboration with ThinkerAnalytix an educational nonprofit, to develop critical thinking methods for science classrooms.
