Summary

Written by leading educators in interdisciplinary critical thinking, this popular rhetoric with readings makes a direct link between learning to write and read effectively and developing critical- thinking skills. Each chapter focuses on a particular critical-thinking skill, such as problem solving or analyzing complex issues, which is practiced and explored through Thinking-Writing Activities and thematically linked readings. Students further develop these skills through carefully sequenced pedagogy that promotes writing and a cross-disciplinary approach that asks them to critically evaluate a variety of readings. Four Characteristics of a Critical Thinker (open-mindedness, creativity, curiosity, and knowledge), adapted from the authors' text, Thinking Critically, are woven consistently throughout the text's pedagogy, presented as achievable goals. Reading apparatus includes brief biographical headnotes before each selection and post-reading questions designed to prompt students to focus not only on matters of rhetoric and comprehension, but also on thinking more critically and creatively. Annotated student essays with process models, which illustrate the Four Characteristics of a Critical Thinker, are supported by process materials to demonstrate how each student worked through the stages of the writing process. A Writing Project at the end of each chapter guides student writing and helps reinforce the skills developed in the chapter's activities; Alternative Writing Projects after select chapters offer instructors additional options for assignments. APA coverage, illustrated by a sample paper, accompanies the research chapter, which also includes updated MLA documentation coverage and sample paper.
