DAILY DIARY_THINK IN ENGLISH CHALLENGE
A reticulated python escaped from its owner who lives in Yokohama on April 6. This incident was placed roughly 10 kilometers away from my house. This snake is about 3.5 meters long. It is not venomous, but it can kill a person by clamping it down. It has already been six days since the escape, and the snake has not been found. Police officers have been using police dogs, thermal cameras, and fiberscopes to investigate, but they can not find it. Fortunately, this snake has a habit of not moving much. I hope it is found soon.
What is critical thinking?
Critical thinking is all about asking the right questions. Questions that help you assess both the meaning and the significance of claims and arguments. The key to critical thinking is to analyze a variety of information and formulate your own independent thoughts before making judgements or making decisions. Critical thinking is also not about being critical and it is about much more than finding flaws in other people’s claims. In order to stand an edge, a true critical thinker needs to be creative, reflective and adaptable. It can be difficult not to be swayed by the opinions of those around you, but learning how to use these higher order thinking skills can help you feel more confident on your own opinions and conclusions.
I do not think that I am a critical thinker at this point. I often tend to agree with the opinions of others. As a result, when I am asked to ask a question, I often can not. That is why I do not think that I am a critical thinker at this point. I will try to participate critically in meetings from now on.
