Abstract

This paper describes how Ennis's (2010) Super-streamlined Concept of Critical Thinking Framework (SSCCTF) has been used to frame an analysis of critical thinking development, in a study of young children who participated in a community creative arts activity. The SSCCTF provided an ideal guide during the research analysis to identify dispositions and abilities displayed by the children and map them across the framework. The aim of the paper is to explain the evidence of critical thinking dispositions and abilities in this cohort of children and interpret its significance in terms of critical thinking development.
