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 possible strategies that Thomas Hutchingson or Samuel Adams most likely used to develop and improve their thinking as those historical events unfolded prior to taking a stand and acting according to their beliefs might be summarizing, and different thinking processes and attitude foundations. Samuel Adams was known for his beliefs, and opinions, and most of all his views. He was not one for being judgmental, well not exactly, he was smart, he would summarize all of the recent evens, and picture all outcomes, and future outcomes, and put each details together, like creating a story, or putting one together, another important strategy that I think he used was maintaining his head, in other words keeping cool, level head, maintaining his attitude. It is important to watch the way you talk to people, everyone is different, and another thing that is important is thinking before you speak. Samuel Adams was careful wit the way he did his writing, he observed, interpreted, and evaluated before pointing out what was needed to be heard or seen. Tone is always important no matter who your talking to, rather it be reading or listening, to be honest it is the hardest to tell tone when reading. 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 of critical and creative thinking when evaluating historical events such as the Boston Tea Party is based off many variables such as allowing others to evaluate the change in society, culture, and surroundings in general. Critical thinking in general requires a lot of though process. Thinking critically would mean your basically thinking about all the ins and out’s of every outcome when it comes to decision making. Thinking about cause and affect as well, being able to see the personal things as well as both sides. Thinking creatively when evaluating historical evens such as the Boston Tea Party might be a useful thought process do to the fact that when your thinking creatively, you could always put yourself in ones shows metaphorically of course, but imagining as if you were living their lives, then being able to separate your mind to think of what they could have done to make it better, what they could had done to prevent or change anything.
