highlight the integration of Critical Thinking Research with the best
practices of teaching Writing and Rhetoric Across the Disciplines. What
are the challenges in, and new pedagogical possibilities for, joining
these two far reaching movements in higher education? How can faculty
across the disciplines help one another build new bridges between
cross-curricular writing and critical thinking?
