A tough assignment! I might be inclined to try Plato's dialogue Crito. In it, Socrates confronts a friend whose common-sense approach to a serious problem seems to be impeccable. Through friendly but critical questioning, Socrates helps the friend - and the reader - come to understand, step by step, why the friend's inclinations and reasoning are seriously flawed. It's a brief reading by Platonic standards, and in some ways it's a microcosm of the Shimer classroom.

Required reading the summer before the first year should include Mortimer J Adler's "How to Read" and "How to Speak, How to Listen."
