Abstract: Critical thinking skills are most important. Because critical thinking is a fundamental to the operation in all matters. The purpose of this research on the Model of Analytical Thinking Skill Training Process were to develop the model and to assess the quality of the model. The model was developed by three steps: model development; model validation and model evaluation. The techniques used to develop analytical thinking skills were D-M-I-H (Differentiation, Mining, Integration and Hierarchy) with activated coaching. The content in the model was related to Sternbergs Theory: the ability of analytical thinking skills. The model was employed with 5 steps in the classroom situation: warm up, demonstrate the skill, step by step coaching, full step coaching and evaluation. The experts in the field evaluated the model with mean 4.33 (full scores ) and SD 17. The model of analytical thinking skill training process will help develop critical thinking skills of the people to the higher level.
