Making Students Take a Stand: Active Learning in Introductory Psychology.
Gorman, Michael E.; And Others
Teaching of Psychology, v8 n3 p164-66 Oct 1981
To teach critical thinking, introductory psychology students were asked to evaluate two books, "Walden Two" and "The Eden Express," from biological, humanistic, or environmental perspectives. Students wrote individual position papers, group position statements, and group critiques of other positions. Questionnaires revealed that students found these experiences enlightening and enjoyable.
