This book teaches students standards for evaluating the thinking of others as they engage in critical reading. Moving from the simple to the complex, the book begins with such basics as distinguishing fact from opinion in preparation for developing more advanced cognitive skills. Each chapter builds on previously developed skills, reinforcing the connections through exercises and writing assignments. With its lucid exposition, real-world examples, and engaging mix of cartoons, multicultural readings and exercises, this ground-breaking book helps students write more clearly by showing them how to focus on their own thinking and perception.
