Considering the Anglo model of writing for the development of critical thinking

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, I discuss the differences in writing based on my experiences in the USA and Britain. I further argue for the existence of an Anglo model of writing, one which is more reflective of current approaches to writing in the USA, and as a result, is also more relevant for students in developing their critical thinking skills. Ultimately, it is speculated that the Anglo model’s existence pre-dates more recent discussion in the USA regarding a preferred structure for college-level essays and thus, in a country without a nationally-prescribed writing course, Britain nonetheless has the lead in this regard.
