Call for Chapters: Handbook of Research on Critical Thinking Strategies in Pre-Service Learning Environments
One of our members, Gina Mariano would like to announce a call for chapters for a new book she is editing with Fred J. Figliano!  The book is about developing critical thinking skills in pre-service teachers. It will be written for pre-service teachers and pre-service teacher educators who want to improve their understanding of critical thinking skill development in pre-service students. The learning strategies discussed in this book can be used to shape college courses and help encourage students to take a more active role in their own learning.
