Critical thinking requires a person to use conscious effort to assess a situation, analyze data, consider options, and formulate decisions while maintaining flexibility. Within the classroom it is a challenge to discover teaching methods that engage the student as well as impart valuable information related to the information being taught. This presentation will illustrate the use of a common game show and good old fashion competition to engage teams of students in the critical thinking process in order to answer application and analysis level questions in a controlled academic setting.
