Think outside the box. Educators often tell students to think outside and see things from a different perspective. The irony is everyone only has one perspective.
But the trick is the educator wants you to think of things from your perspective. Think critically is more the appeal.
If you’re about to write your term paper or finish up your research paper, make sure to keep these three things in mind to ease up the burden.
If you’re a fan of reading then congratulations – you know how to think critically and react to certain situations and topics.
If not? Well, you have to start doing such.
Students who are active readers understand how writers of any genres build their arguments. Why are people furious against Twilight? Why do they praise Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter? It involves seeing the perspective of the author, the organisation of their content and simply the author’s thinking processes.
React To News
People react with today’s news immediately. If you have no reaction, then you might need to do research regarding the issue. Once you have, with all your data on hand, what do you feel it is trying to tell you?
Upon seeing the last-minute change of heart of Leave voters as they jump to Vote Remain regarding the issue of Brexit, did you think the death of a lawmaker had affected all these? Is there sufficient data to prove the West is moving towards an anti-establishment stance?
These are just a few things that are truly helpful in understanding critical thought.
Ask yourself about the arguments of the writer in the books or articles you’ve read. See the efficiency of the evidence they presented.
Understand how the writer is connecting their ideas and how they evaluate their information.
In this manner, you could begin to write. Don’t be afraid. Write the first thing you think about and everything else will follow suit.
