Critical Reading: A Guide for Faculty and Students in Economics and History. Final Report, Second Year.
Bean, Thomas W.
The first year of California State University's program to improve university students' critical reading of introductory texts had two objectives: to develop professors' available repertoire of strategies for guiding students' independent learning from texts and to develop students' facility in learning from texts with adjunct guide materials (including study guide questions, graphic organizers, vocabulary, and selective reading guides). The second year of the project aimed to develop critical reading guide materials for the second half of a western civilization course and related minicourse and to develop critical reading guide materials and a minicourse for a section on economics. This report summarizes the results of the second year of the project in eight subsections: (1) project background and philosophy, (2) second year objectives, (3) planning phase, (4) dissemination efforts, (5) implementation phase, (6) minicourse results for history, (7) minicourse results for economics, and (8) conclusions and recommendations. Among the appendixes are a study group format for the minicourse on economics, selective reading guides for the economics and history courses, and a graphic organizer for history. (HOD)
