Critical Reading & Thinking
Monday, September 28, 2020 - 10:30am to 11:20am
When students develop their individual capacity for critical thinking and reading, they are less likely to feel the pressure to engage in cheating or academic dishonesty. Professors and TAs often talk about the need to think critically but few actually explain what critical thinking is or how to do it. We will define critical thinking and how you can train yourself to ask meaningful and relevant questions that promote critical thinking when you're reading. This webinar may be recorded for later use.
