Fully Digital Learning Modules for First-Year Writing Courses
Replace your reader and rhetoric.
Fake News, The Rhetoric of Social Media, Good Faith Argument, Free Thinking, Protest Art v. Propaganda, and Research as Critical Thinking.
reduce textbook costs by 90% – We’re talking under $10.
Students pay $5 (!) each when you assign one module. This is for when you just want to add one of our interesting units.
Or $10 for access to the whole library and you assign as many as you want. This is the whole semester’s-worth.
Meta-cognitive critical thinking methodology
We’ve scaffolded over a hundred critical thinking “moves” (such as defining criteria for analysis, for example) into normal reading, thinking, and writing activities within a meta-cognitive framework.
Who are we, anyway?
We are a small band of Big Publishing refugees,
Professors and authors,
and a university based user-experience firm
teamed up to make high-quality course materials available to everyone
(which means very inexpensively)
so that we can start to erode the opportunity gap
and do our part to make a fairer, more inclusive, and better informed world.
We go by “The Indie” to our friends.
