9Critical ThinkingTo be critical is not to be "negative" or even to "disagree. Rather, critical thinking refers to a process of reflecting deeply: in thinking critically we try to shed greater light on an idea, unpack its implicit assumptions, and build through distancing and recapitulation a larger, constructive view.The essence of criticism consists not of disagreement with the text, but of distance from the text. Dr. Martha Reineke (UNI)One of the most difficult things for my students is thinking critically about what they read. Most tend to accept the text they read in an unquestioning manner.10Read, Encode, Annotate, PonderRRead the text.

Read-Encode-Annotate-Ponder (REAP) is a teaching method developed by M.G. Eanet & A.V. Manzo at University of Missouri- Kansas City in 1976. It is a strategy developed for students to use to improve writing, thinking, and reading. As a teaching method, it is intended to teach students a variety of ways to respond to any text. The responses are brief and poignant ways to critique or annotate what they have read. There are different types of annotations which range from simple summary (reconstructive) to highly challenging critical-creative responses (constructive). Following this slide, allow 10 minutes for thinking and starting the AB.11Value of Annotated BibliographiesReaders have to discriminate & synthesize what the author is sayingReaders have to restate text in their own wordsEncourages reflective thinkingAnnotations ensure meaningful reading and encourage clear and concise thinking and writing Annotations enhance reader's knowledge base as well as improve thinking and writing skills12
