The research paper is a very traditional, but tired, method for developing critical thinking. Unfortunately, students are seldom inspired to do more than go through the motions of gathering a few facts before they get to what they consider the meat of the assignment-writing the paper. When research assignments are inspiring, students engage in the process of research, which is a continuous stream of decision-making, packed with critical thinking potential.
