A Student's Guide to Critical Reading Using APPS
Rautman, Alison E.
College Teaching, v62 n2 p76-76 2014
The concept of smart phone apps forms a mnemonic device and checklist for students who are learning critical thinking and reading skills. "Use your apps" reminds students to consider the importance of Author, Audience, Assumptions, Point of View, Perspective, and Scale when reading any text. "APPS" also lends itself to class discussion and assessment, even in large class settings.
