         Subject: Call for Manuscripts

Request for manuscripts on Critical Thinking.
Please visit my website for information regarding
manuscript submission for Academic Exchange Quarterly:

Despite the long standing tradition and popularity of
the lecture format, it is very limiting when trying to
develop critical thinking skills among students.
Developing critical thinking skills is regarded by
many educational professionals as being of primary
importance. However, many educators seem to have only
a vague understanding of what critical thinking is and
how it can be taught. This issue will aim to address
this problem by outlining what is meant by critical
thinking, how it can adequately be demonstrated, why
it is an important intellectual skill, and strategies
for fostering critical thinking.

Who May Submit:
Manuscripts are sought from those whose experiences,
methods, and assessments in the high school or college
classroom have produced meaningful ways to teach
critical thinking, whether in the traditional
classroom, through on-line courses, or a combination
of class meetings and web-based work. Manuscripts
devoted to the challenges of imparting the nuances of
critical thinking are also invited.

Please identify your submission with keyword: CRITICAL
