Atwater, Thomas
PS: Political Science and Politics, v24 n2 p209-11 Jun 1991
Discusses teaching of critical thinking in introductory college government classes. Emphasizes identifying, evaluating, and constructing arguments as fundamental skills. Suggests text and methods for developing these skills. Argues that government classes involve too much information to allow students to retain much if taught in the traditional manner. Suggests that texts should provide argument and the instructor provide background. (DK)
