Designing Writing Assignments That Foster Critical Thinking: A Brief Annotated Bibliography.
Haynes, Jared
This bibliography offers detailed summaries of five articles (published between 1983 and 1993) that provide practical and theoretical advice on designing writing assignments that can serve as more than just evaluation tools. The articles summarized in the bibliography confirm common sense but also dispel some common misconceptions about student writing and the effectiveness of writing assignments. The first article in the bibliography describes the cognitive development of college students and lays the groundwork for some of the assertions in the next four articles. The second article addresses the goals of good writing assignments and pinpoints strategies which ensure that students do not misread those goals. The third and fourth articles give strategies for constructing a good assignment and suggest types of assignments that foster critical thinking, while the fifth article concentrates on the idea of sequencing assignments and gives an example of a sequence based on a central theme.
