Many language learners and native speakers in developmental English classes have trouble providing academically appropriate supporting information / examples in their writing; they often resort to personal stories and anecdotes. In this session, the presenter will share a technique on teaching an important critical thinking skill: providing details and adequate supporting information in body paragraphs / essay. The technique will be illustrated through an actual sample of student work. The presentation focuses on one specific topic: teaching critical thinking skills to students in developmental English and ESL classes. It falls directly under teaching and learning for student success. The presented strategy promotes engagement of students with the content in the classroom. It also indirectly connects their personal experiences with the course content. In addition to the presentation and explanation of the technique, the presenter will ask the audience to answer a specific question about their personal experiences in writing, 4-5 sentences. Then, she will ask them to turn their personal examples into academic ones.
