Challenging Students to Think: Making Critical Thinking and Writing Central to the "Basic" Course.
Pawlowski, Donna R.
Many times, college students are exposed to the communication discipline solely through the basic public speaking course, allowing limited opportunity to experience critical thinking and writing within the discipline. This paper examines the importance of teaching critical thinking and writing skills in the basic course, encouraging educators to develop students' cognitive intellect through the application of these skills.
