The six editions of this newsletter provide a forum for the sharing of research findings and instructional strategies by faculty of Western Michigan University on issues connected with critical thinking. Topics addressed include alternative program designs for critical thinking instruction, a philosophical exploration of what critical thinking is, classroom activities that address critical thinking, teaching large classes, written assignments that address critical thinking, the response journal and the analytic essay, writing in the senior year, and strategies for introducing critical thinking skills. Several of the issues contain a faculty "Exchange Board" in which measures for preventing cheating and plagiarism are shared along with news of interest from the higher education field. References accompany most articles. (JB)
