Essential Ways to Build Students Critical Thinking in Literature Classes

Laila Nadir


Abstract: Critical thinking skill is considered one of the most important factors of teaching and learning in 21st century. It enhances students to think deeply and find proper solutions for different types of issues. Critical thinking is closely linked with the cognitive skills; it helps students to identify the problems and then confronts the learners with the best possible solutions. What makes students able to be problem solvers and critical learner is reading. Since language learners deal with different types of reading, it would be more effective if language teachers choose literary texts as a tool to build students’ critical thinking skill. Literature genres encourage the learners to foster the causes and effects of each point in a text and not to limit their understanding by yes or no. To conceive the importance of building students’ critical thinking through reading literary texts, this study was done. In addition, this paper examines the importance of critical thinking and the role of the literature teachers on developing students’ critical thinking skill. Some essential methodologies and perspectives will be introduced to see what other researchers found about the issue.
