Using Self-Experimentation and Single-Subject Methodology to Promote Critical Thinking
Cowley, Brian J.; Lindgren, Ann; Langdon, David
InSight: A Collection of Faculty Scholarship, v1 p26-40 2006
Critical thinking is often absent from classroom endeavor because it is hard to define (Gelder, 2005) or is difficult to assess (Bissell & Lemons, 2006). Critical thinking is defined as application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation (Browne & Minnick, 2005). This paper shows how self-experimentation and single-subject methodology can be used to promote many levels of critical thinking in an Applied Behavior Analysis course. Two classroom assignment examples of this process and a grading rubric are provided. (Contains 1 figure.)
