The RAC Web site has great material for you!

http://academic.pg.cc.md.us/~wpeirce/MCCCTR

The RAC Web site is shared with the Maryland Community College Consortium for Teaching Reasoning. The site contains articles, workshop handouts, lists of books on teaching thinking (including publishers' URLs and telephone numbers), links to other Web sites on teaching thinking, URLs for students writing argumentative papers, and more.

Itís been mentioned admiringly on several higher education faculty e-discussion lists, noted as a useful resource at college workshops across the country on teaching critical thinking, and has received more than 7000 visitors since 1998. Thereís something useful there for you too.

When you reach the MCCCTR Web site, click on "Documents from Prince George's Community College" for materials and articles from PGCC workshops. Recent additions or revisions to the collection of articles include teaching thinking online and understanding how learning styles explain studentsí difficulties in thinking.
