The newest addition to the Master Student program provides a collection of contemporary readings for self-reflection and critical thinking. Structured in a way that exposes students to a variety of reading and writing styles, the Master Student Reader excerpts work from a variety of sources including student writing, textbooks, magazines, newspapers, web sites, essays, and speeches. An emphasis on journal writing provides students with a means to self assess, while additional writing requirements—such as persuasive essays, fact or opinion papers, and research papers—help students take a more traditional approach to developing critical-thinking skills. Power Process articles motivate and encourage students to take charge of their college experience. Reflection Questions stimulate in-class discussion and can be used as writing prompts. Writing Assignments get students thinking about audience, purpose, and length of an essay, and help them analyze the information they have learned. Journal Entries (Discovery and Intention Statements) allow students to reflect specifically on their personal feelings, identify new information that they have discovered in the articles, and think about how to apply these ideas in other courses and in life. Mastering Vocabulary prompts students to identify and define new vocabulary words. Additional Activities include exercises for working with classmates, alternative projects and out-of-the-box activities for students to explore their campus.
