This book explores narrative imagination and emotion as resources for learning critical meta-reflection. The author examines the learning trajectories of several students as they engage in learning to think critically through a new approach to creative writing, and details how learning through writing is linked to new discoursal identities which are trialled in the writing process. In doing so, she analyses the processes of expansion and change that result from the negotiations involved in learning through writing. This volume offers a completely new approach to creative writing, including useful practical advice as well as a solid theoretical base. It is sure to appeal to students of creative writing and discourse analysis as well as applied linguistics and language as identity.

Make Straight Your Arrow: Student Writing, Critical Thinking, and General Semantics addresses the difficulties students experience in thinking clearly and writing precisely - and expressively! It teaches students to pay attention to their own critical thinking processes and to the language involved in both careful thinking and effective writing. The book establishes a foundation of general semantic principles and offers a series of assignments encouraging students to discover the benefits that operational prose can bring to their thinking and writing. Early assignments ask students to describe, summarize, and report; later assignments ask students to analyze and refute others' arguments. At the end of each assignment-sequence, students offer their own arguments about moral and practical questions. Students also receive training in integrating source material with their own arguments. The graduated series of assignments makes the text suitable for writing classes at all levels. With its emphasis on helping students meet the real challenges they face in writing and critical thinking, Make Straight Your Arrow successfully leads student-writers from incoherence to coherence and gives them communication skills for use in the classroom and beyond.

The Art of Thinking introduces students to the principles and techniques of critical thinking, taking them step-by-step through the processes of solving problems, making decisions, and taking a stand on an issue. Emphasizing both creative and critical thought, Ruggiero asserts that these techniques are intertwined and that students need to be able to generate ideas and arguments of their own as well as analyze the ideas and arguments of others. Discussions of how to evaluate ideas and how to question assumptions or biases guide students to look at concepts critically. Instruction in composing, speaking, and formal logic helps students express their ideas to others.

Written by leading educators in interdisciplinary critical thinking, this popular rhetoric with readings makes a direct link between learning to write and read effectively and developing critical- thinking skills. Each chapter focuses on a particular critical-thinking skill, such as problem solving or analyzing complex issues, which is practiced and explored through Thinking-Writing Activities and thematically linked readings. Students further develop these skills through carefully sequenced pedagogy that promotes writing and a cross-disciplinary approach that asks them to critically evaluate a variety of readings. Four Characteristics of a Critical Thinker (open-mindedness, creativity, curiosity, and knowledge), adapted from the authors' text, Thinking Critically, are woven consistently throughout the text's pedagogy, presented as achievable goals. The reading apparatus includes brief biographical headnotes before each selection and post-reading questions designed to prompt students to focus on matters of rhetoric and comprehension as well as on thinking more critically and creatively. Annotated student essays with process models, which illustrate the Four Characteristics of a Critical Thinker, are supported by process materials to demonstrate how each student worked through the stages of the writing process. APA coverage, illustrated by a sample paper, accompanies the research chapter, which also includes updated MLA documentation coverage and sample paper.
