Abstract:

Following on from my presentation last year which addressed the methodology of teaching a core curriculum American Government course without using a standard textbook, this paper will address the role of critical thinking in the learning process by reviewing current
literature which addresses the psychology of this aspect of learning. In addition, an explanation of what the term “critical thinking” means in the context of the study of government will be given along with how the use of writing assignments and class discussions have been effective in promoting this type of learning in the sections which I have taught.
