assumptions
Assumptions?
  • An essential part of being a fair-minded critical thinker is the ability to identify our own assumptions about topics before we can objectively evaluate it.
  • In order to do this we are going to answer several critical thinking questions to help us determine our own assumptions and presuppositions about culture.
  • The Process:
    • Answer each question individually.
    • Discuss your response with your shoulder partner.
    • Discuss as a whole class.

Thumbs up/Thumbs down: Do you understand the process?
