The text offers the use of film clips ideas in the back of the book.
The text "Higher Learning:  Reading and Writing about College" can be
used for critical thinking and self-development without also using film
clips for student engagement and discussion.

  Hello:

I use and very much like "Higher Learning: Reading and Writing about
College" by See and Taylor. Each reading is really short so several can
be assigned at one time. I show related film clips which seem to really
engage student learning and help to make the points related to both self
development and critical thinking. The book is published by
Pearson/Prentice Hall.

Subject: Student Development Reader

We offer a first year seminar for underprepared students who do not meet
the university's admission requirements but have successfully completed
a Summer Bridge Program. The course focuses more on student development
than study skills and uses On Course by Skip Downing. Can anyone
recommend a good companion reader that helps students develop critical
thinking skills while practicing their reading skills?
