The purpose of this study is to evaluate a program to develop the critical thinking skills, knowledge, and attitudes of undergraduate students. The program we developed comprises of the following steps. Step 1: Seminars using textbooks to inculcate general critical thinking. Step 2: Critical reading exercises using academic articles to transfer textbook knowledge to academic contexts. In both steps, small-group activities were introduced to develop attitudes toward critical thinking. Pre, post, and delay assessments indicated positive changes in the participants, which suggested the effectiveness of this program.
