Counter-Statement: Using Written Dialogue to Develop Critical Thinking and Writing.
Hahn, Stephen
College Composition and Communication, v38 n1 p97-100 Feb 1987
Discusses how the development of critical thinking skills is inhibited in many students because they under-conceptualize the context in which controversy occurs. Suggests ways to raise students' awareness of being involved in a continuing debate, such as using written dialogue as a basis for extending a writing assignment that combines exposition, analysis, and argumentation.
