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. Thomas Hutchinson was very loyal to supremacy and following the laws set out by the British Government. His strategies were more than likely to be strict and keep his lawful values. Mr. Hutchinson would not allow the ships to leave the port as Mr. Adams attempted to organize. Many colonists believed this was because of the twenty day law, ships have 20 days to unload cargo or the cargo will be seized and sold to pay custom duties. Perhaps, Mr. Hutchinson was planning on holding the ships for twenty days to seize and sell the tea under a different law. Thus, he was still not unloading the cargo immediately and attempting to please his people. He was considering the future. However, Mr. Hutchinson did not take into consideration how angry the colony would become and he never anticipated the possibility of the destruction of the tea. His conscience thinking into the future was biased and he only took into consideration how he would sell the tea. 2. Explain the importance of building a foundation for critical and creative thinking when evaluating historical events such as the Boston Tea Party. Critical thinking involves setting aside personal endeavors and personal beliefs and obtaining facts. When evaluating any historical events and particularly The Boston Tea Party it is important to gather all facts and be sure that the facts are unbiased. Without critical and creative thinking it is hard to decide the moral judgments and character of those involved. Every historical event has led into another or started a path for changes in our country. 3.
