For me getting a liberal arts education is all about learning to think critically. Critical thinking is all about examining ideas, analyzing situations and problem solving.
- I think a good example of my critical thinking skills is the design process that I used to make my Octopus Mitts.
- I examine my design process in the video that I made for this class.
- Another example of the application of my critical thinking skills is in this paper that I wrote for an upper division English class. The class was "Major Authors: Hemingway and Faulkner." I used a lot of techniques that I learned in another English class, "Ecocriticism," to write a paper that examined Faulkner's short story, The Bear from an ecocritical perspective.
