Critical Reading is an essential skill for our students, yet we often spend little time on helping them develop it. The way one reads a particular text varies widely depending on content and audience and students often lack the skill set to read certain types of writing. To address this, lecture outlines have been developed for use with teaching General Chemistry courses to college freshmen. These outlines represent a first step in developing critical reading skills in the sciences and provide a template for students to incorporate textbook reading with in class material. They are designed to help the students organize the content, as well as, engage the textbook on their own. This presentation will introduce the concept of the lecture outlines and explore their effectiveness in teaching General Chemistry.
