Appendix A 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. 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. Two strategies’ that Thomas Hutchison and Samuel Adams used were weighing out all the pros and cons and solicitation. Thomas Hutchison felt that all ties need to be maintained with England to keep the peace between them and their colonies. Therefore weighing out all the pros and cons to increase the trade for the colonies so that it would put them in a better position financially, could have been a strategy they likely used. Basically the pros and cons show the positive and negatives of taxation without representation. This could have likely been determined through solicitation of opinions among the colonists, in which a number of them agreed with the radicals. 2. Explain the importance of building a foundation for critical and creative thinking when evaluating historical events such as the Boston Tea Party. The importance of building a foundation for critical and creative thinking when evaluating historical events is to consider the facts of the things that happened. In other words the things that we know were true. The reason it is important to create a foundation of creative thinking is because along with the facts we should also consider other possibilities and outcomes of what could have happened that we don’t know. Reason we should look at it this way is because we could not have been present at the time those events occurred. So how do we really know the truth about history if we weren’t present at the time? Therefore that’s not really saying it is questionable, but it is good to look at other possibilities also about the events that occurred. 3.
