Topic: Critical Thinking

10-second review: Begin by having students respond to advertisement or TV commercials. What questions do the students have about the advertisement’s messages?

Title: “You Mean, Write It Over in Ink?” L Odell and J Cohick. English Journal (December 1975), 48-53. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Comment: Of course I’m old and have probably lost my ability to comprehend. I view on TV more and more ads that simply don’t make sense to me. Seems like a good place to begin my own and students’ training in asking questions for the purpose of improving critical thinking. RayS.
