Expanding upon traditional class structure, William Fawcett Hill's Learning Through Discussion, Third Edition, enables students to develop critical thinking skills that are applicable to the classroom and the "real world." Like Hill's original volume, the authors introduce the eight-step method--check-in, vocabulary, general statement of author's message, identification and discussion of major themes and sub-topics, application of material to other works and to self, and evaluation of group and individual performance. They next examine the criteria essential for developing an effective discussion group, which includes cooperative learning, active participation, and interaction. This combination of cognitive and personal skills the method employs allows the group to reach the primary goal: extended discussion and deeper understanding of the material. By empowering groups to foster a maximum level of learning, William Fawcett Hill's Learning Through Discussion is essential for students, scholars, and professionals in all disciplines.
