About the Author:

John Nelson's education background includes a B.A. with honors from Harvard University, graduate work at Oxford University, and an M.A. in English from the University of Illinois. He has taught speech, basic communications, composition, literature, creative writing, and English in higher education for over 30 years. He received the National Institute for Staff & Organizational Development Teaching Excellence Award in 1999, and Commonwealth of Massachusetts Outstanding Service Awards in 1985 and 1995, among others. Throughout his career at North Shore Community College, he was deeply involved in curriculum development, including two decades of leadership on the college curriculum committee. As curriculum coordinator for a TRIO program serving 400 students, he teamed with colleagues to develop and implement an integrated curriculum centered on critical thinking. He has conducted seminars on how to teach critical thinking, and has received numerous grants and published articles on curricular innovations.

Review:

This is an outstanding pedagogy across the curriculum; indeed, there is no curriculum it would not improve. --Geoffrey Harpham, January 2006
