Critical reading, writing, and thinking are the heart and soul of college success because they are the foundation of academic literacy. In this session, faculty will learn how to teach critical reading and writing through a variety of interactive activities that they can use as soon as they return to their classes. In the process, they will discover effective ways of making critical thinking a viable part of each class they teach.
