Annis, Linda F.; Annis, David B.
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v4 n3 p219-26 Jul 1979
The effect of college course content on students' growth in critical thinking was investigated. Students enrolled in various philosophy courses and a non-philosophy control were pre- and post-tested for critical thinking. Only the logic course had a consistent impact on certain aspects of critical thinking. (Author/RD)
