Join the Conversation: Teaching Students to "Cook"--Promoting Reading in the First Year Experience Course
Self Trand, Patsy A.; Eberly, Charlene
Learning Assistance Review, v14 n2 p7-20 Fall 2009
The current trend in First Year Experience (FYE) courses is to add critical thinking through reading and writing. Research now suggests this design for a learning strategy based FYE course improves retention rates. This paper provides methods of incorporating critical thinking through reading and learning into the FYE course curriculum through a common reading lesson plan and a sample lesson plan that teaches the four vectors of critical thinking through reading and learning. Student responses to the lessons indicate usefulness for college success. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
