I plan to discuss how I use the Internet to engage the student. Online services have become the fabric of our lives and I tap into this medium in my World Civilization courses. The students are employing multiple methods of research, reading, and analytical thinking. Second, I will reveal how I use creativity to encourage critical thinking in their writing pieces. Often as professors, we are given certain texts—sometimes we have a choice on what they read, sometimes we don’t. What I do is use the primary sources we have and encourage the students to “think outside the box” and engage in research and creative inquiry to produce an admirable piece of literature.
