Bill D BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance (315* d) RE: BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance 19 Dec 20


"..teaching of critical thinking skills" is pretty similar to 'sneakily teaching how to think' that I'd like to see. I made a specific point that directly teaching **what to think** was to be avoided.
Stilly... since you are in Texas, I'm sure you are aware of both techniques being used in different ways and circumstances. I know that in Kansas both could be found in the same school. I once ended up in Mr. William's 6th period science class in the 8th grade, which every year got the 'honor' of parroting the biblical narrative in the Christmas program... "And there were in those days, shepherds.." etc...
   We got no option to opt out... I'm not sure what would have happened if anyone tried. I was still a couple of years from even worrying about it.
