The best way to teach people critical thinking is to teach them to write.
Because there’s no difference between that and thinking.
No one tells students why they should write something.
“Well, why are you writing?”
“Well, you need the grade.”
But that’s not correct.
You need to learn to think because thinking makes you act effectively in the world.
If you can think, and speak, and write, you are unstoppable.
Nothing can get in your way.
If you can:
· Speak to people.
· Lay out a proposal.
· Make a presentation.
· Formulate arguments coherently.
Then, people give you money, they give you opportunities, you have influence.
That’s why people go to university.
Those are the skills that will make your potential unlimited.
Because that’s the most dangerous thing you can possibly be.
