Why Critical Thinking Is Important
Last week, you were asked to consider which stage of critical thinking you felt that you were in. This week, building off last week’s assignment and lecture, we know that employers are wanting more critical thinking from their employees. From the perspective of the employer, why is it so important to have employees who can critically think? From your perspective, how has critical thinking helped you in the past, or how do you perceive it helping you as an employee in the future? (Consider your dream job!)
Your work should be at least 500 words, but mostly draw from your own personal experience. This should be written in first person and give examples from your life. Be sure if you are using information from the readings that you properly cite your readings in this, and in all assignments.
