Critical thinking matters because it is at the core of everything we do in life. It has been said that shallow thinking leads to a shallow life, and critical thinking leads to a life of meaning.

“There’s less critical thinking going on in this country on a Main Street level — forget about the media — than ever before. We’ve never needed people to think more critically than now, and they’ve taken a big nap.” — Alec Baldwin

Unfortunately, most of our thinking is not critical thinking.

Actually, most of our thinking doesn’t need to be critical thinking. If you applied critical thinking to every decision you make, you would be exhausted before you even got to work in the morning.

Things like what to wear, what to eat for breakfast, and what route to take to work don’t require major decisions or critical thinking.

Where we run into problems is when we use automatic thinking to make important decisions. When we use don’t use critical thinking for important decisions we tend to go with the flow and let others make our decisions for us.

A good example of this is choosing our government. In the 2016 elections, only 58% of us chose to vote. That means that 42% of Americans decided to let someone else make critical decisions for them.

Critical thinking can also help in the workplace. As more and more businesses are faced with the challenges of increased competition, government regulations, and a changing workforce, the need for employees who can use their critical thinking skills to solve these challenges is critical for their success.

According to Dave Root,

“Critical thinking is more than a desirable soft skill; it’s a valuable competency that is the basis for innovation and problem-solving. When properly cultivated in the workplace, critical thinking can help individuals and teams overcome challenges and meet business goals.”

Critical thinking is a skill that is critical to solving government issues, making businesses more competitive, and making your life more meaningful.

     Subject: Interesting class that I had

 

     Dear Friend,

                   Compare to any other classes I have taken during my school history, I feel no one class could give me so many joys than the English class could do. As I learned it quite good and in every test I got the best mark in the class. I learned not only a lot of Basic English knowledge in my middle school but also the personal characteristics which lead my interests along through my later education life.

              When I was in my middle school, it was a great thing when I know that there would be an English class tomorrow morning. Cause I could enjoy another interesting 45 minutes during the class. Rather than other classes, like Science, Nepali or Mathematics, i established my English-relative interests group in social media, which give me a great benefit in my study in the university. I believe none class else can inspire me so far to pursue a scientific result.

          Another important thing I attain through the English class is to collaborate with other students. I think it certainly formed my teamwork sprite when I entered the career position as an engineer. I can still remember clearly my teachers of the English course in my middle school and my high school. They are all the people of great patient and instructive characteristic. They told me not to quit when I failed again and again. They give me a lot of confidence and disciplines of the mind toward success.

 

Regards,

  2. You are supposed to write email about an interesting class you had. Not about English class as a whole but about the particular class in English or any other subject that you found interesting.
