Axia College Material Appendix A Midterm Exam Access the Week Four Electronic Reserve Readings located under the materials section of your student website. Read, watch, and listen to the media presented on the Boston Tea Party. Write a paragraph of approximately 100 words for each section listed below. 1. Using the critical thinking skills you have gained so far and referring to the materials provided for this assignment, identify two possible strategies that Thomas Hutchinson or Samuel Adams likely used to develop and improve their thinking as those historical events unfolded prior to taking a stand and acting according to their beliefs. I believe that Samuel Adams may have possibly used these two strategies. The first one being the “if then” approach. I think that Samuel Adams stopped to think of the different outcomes of the tea tax. He took the time to think about his actions, if he did this or did that, and thought about the outcomes of each question. The other strategy he may have used is conclusions. He knew that there were different conclusions to the tax problem. But he thought of the outcomes of each possible conclusion. 2. Explain the importance of building a foundation for critical and creative thinking when evaluating historical events such as the Boston Tea Party. It is important to have a strong foundation for critical and creative thinking when evaluation historical events, because these events happened a long time ago. Therefore you are not relying on your own experience. Your own experience is the most reliable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
