Teaching Strategies Designed To Assist Community College Science Students' Critical Thinking.
Arburn, Theresa M.; Bethel, Lowell M.
Instructors at two-year community colleges are faced with the challenge of helping students learn content knowledge and skills in an abbreviated period of time. In particular, developing students' critical thinking skills is an essential task. This paper reports on a study in which students in a Human Anatomy and Physiology class at a community college were taught to apply a technique that required them to generate questions in order to develop more complex modes of thinking. Results indicate no significant improvement in the treatment group. (Contains 39 references.) (WRM)
