Title: How to Teach Critical Thinking to Japanese University Students through Literature
Authors: BROWNING, Carol
Keywords: Great Books Programs
Issue Date: 31-Oct-1996
Publisher: 北海学園大学人文学会
Abstract: The Great Books Programs are an alternative way to teach language and literature to Japanese students. For the facilitator or discussion leader they are intellectually challenging and refreshing programs. To come away from a classroom session stimulated by students' ideas and their discussions is personally rewarding for any caring teacher. These programs are also exciting for the students. They enjoy the preparation and discussions, which seem to nurture in them a love of English, a desire to communicate, and self-confidence in their own reactions, analyses and well-reasoned answers. Perhaps the most important objective of the Great Books Programs is that they develop in students the habits of inquiry and informed intellectual exchange essential to independent, critical thinking, and a lifetime of learning. These skills are the building blocks for effective citizenship in a free, democratic society.
