Front Cover
Jossey-Bass, Oct 10, 1986 - Education - 131 pages
Chet Meyers shows instructors in all disciplines how to help students develop the skills for applying serious critical thinking to their subjects. He also shows how to inspire in students the intellectual curiosity and desire to understand that motivates rigorous critical thought. Arguing that critical thinking is an integral component of all academic disciplines, he demonstrates why it should be a part of every course and outlines course strategies, ways to conduct classroom discussions, and written assignments that actively promote critical thinking.
