Stimulating Critical Thinking with "Think Sheets"
For 30-40 pages of reading, assign one page of writing due the day of class discussion.
This must not summarize or evaluate, but instead discuss what it made the students think about in their own lives.
These are higher quality and fun to read and grade than traditional writing assignments.
