Critical Thinking, Reading, and Writing. Teaching Resources in the ERIC Database (TRIED) Series.
Morgan, Mary; Shermis, Michael
Part of the TRIED Series (teaching resources in the ERIC database, condensed and reorganized from their original sources to offer a wide but manageable range of teaching suggestions, useful ideas, and classroom techniques), this book focuses on practical suggestions for developing critical thinking, reading, and writing skills at both the elementary and the secondary level. Following an introduction and a user's guide, an activities chart indicates the skills emphasized in each lesson, as well as the types of activities (such as collaborative writing, role-playing, group presentations, etc.) found in each lesson. The next section offers 19 lesson outlines involving critical thinking, reading, and writing at the elementary level, while the following section on secondary education also offers 19 such lessons. Each lesson includes a brief description, objectives, and procedures. A 28-item annotated bibliography at the end of the book contains references to additional lessons and resources for incorporating critical thinking, reading, and writing into the classroom. (SR)
