Summary

This book is designed to develop readers' critical thinking abilities as they apply to the reading of college textbooks and other academic materials.

The art of questioning with extensive demonstrations of what questions to ask in reading discipline-specific materials and which answers to look for forms the underlying structure of the book. The book covers thinking skills such as inference, generalization, recognition of organizational patterns and evaluation throughout and offers many readings on aspects of cognitive development. In addition, the book includes special sections on reading graphic material, fiction, and criticism.
