Valuable Knowledge: Students as Consumers of Critical Thinking in the Community College Classroom
Jensen, Jane McEldowney; Worth, Benjamin
Journal of General Education, v63 n4 p287-308 2014
This ethnographic study examines the negotiation of the value of critical thinking by a group of community college students and their instructor in a required general education literature course. Using a sociological analysis, the authors explore how the students situated themselves as both learners and consumers in the classroom, a social field that contrasts marketplace realities and academic expectations.
