I am super excited about the potential of this semester and this group of students. After two days of first day classes, I am encouraged by the positive attitudes and willingness to move (however reluctantly) out of comfort zones.
Remember that I am available for you during office hours (so far, no one has signed up!) and other times if those don’t work for your schedules. I guess we’re ready; let’s ROCK this!
“Critical thinking is, in short, self-directed, self-disciplined, self-monitored, and self-corrective thinking. It requires rigorous standards of excellence and mindful command of their use. It entails effective communication and problem solving abilities and a commitment to overcoming our native egocentrism and sociocentrism.”
Taken from “Critical Thinking: Concepts and Tools” by Richard Paul & Linda Elder
This whole blog thing seems like it should be fairly simple; after all, I’ve used Facebook for several years and have no problem, usually, with technology. This is different, though, and it will take me some time to get used to it.
If you are a student, you can take comfort in the knowledge that this is not particularly comfortable for me, so if you are feeling nervous or unsure of what to do or how to do it, I understand. We will continue to learn about blogging together.
Thanks for stopping by my page. Leave a message if you’re so inclined!
