Axia College Material Appendix A David Bland HUM/111 3/31/11 Fernando Javier Franco Midterm Exam Access the Week Four Electronic Reserve Readings located under the materials section of your student website. Read this week’s Electronic Reserve Readings. Write a paragraph of approximately 100 words for each section listed below. 1.

This is why they were both apart of the Boston Tea Party Movement and were both governors of Massachusetts. Another way of creative thinking that could have been used visualization. Visualizing the “win” or “success” is a critical thinking skill I use daily if I cannot see myself doing whatever it is then maybe I won’t ever do it. This is what Sam and Thomas could have used to be affective in society. When times got hard and things didn’t go the way Sam or Thomas wanted they kept going because they probably had a vision and when you get that vision it’s hard to erase. 2. Explain the importance of building a foundation for critical and creative thinking when evaluating historical events such as the Boston Tea Party. When looking at such an historical event that happened in our history you can’t help but to make a solid foundation for your creative thinking. You have to look at the pros and the cons when you are looking at a event like the Boston Tea Party. Doing different things like observations or having past experiences help
