    Critical Thinking Guide:
    When you download to print, set printer to print front and back, flipping the image on the side. (Pages 1 and 2 go together, 3 and 4, 5 and 6, and so on...) There is a picture of the finished product here, as you will need to cut a couple of tabs into the pages once assembled. There are guidelines to fold the guide printed directly on the document. If you have trouble, email me--my address is in the left side menu at the bottom.
