Critical thinking- Is it a lost art?

October 16, 2009

I have recently seen a lack of critical thinking skills in students. I’m left wondering where they went. The high school students I have recently observed appear to lack or at least struggle with taking the information they are studying and apply it to the real world. There seems to be this small box that each piece of information is put into and the students have trouble seeing that information outside of the box.
I worry that we are quickly losing such abilities in our children because we have focused their learning on test taking and scores.

The question now is- are we killing their creativity?

Job outlook

October 12, 2009

Looking at job openings today- not promising. I’m leaning toward international positions, but likely need a few years experience first. You would think after 9 years of college and 3 degrees you could get a job!!
