If you checked out the business section in the Philadelphia newspaper this morning, you probably spotted the main article about John Maketa (one of the authors of Now You’re Thinking!). The article talks about how the authors worked with Pearson Foundation and We Give Books to help donate 12,000 books to 3 military charities. In addition, the author notes that now more than ever, critical thinking is essential for career growth.
Unemployment numbers are still astonishingly high, and many people have been out of work for years. This is the time to re-evaluate your thinking. The article notes that Now You’re Thinking! provides a concise guide to understanding the RED Model of Critical Thinking so readers can learn to Recognize their Assumptions, Evaluate Information, and Draw Conclusions.
In addition, readers can then go online and learn their thinking style through theMy Thinking Styles assessment.
The article goes on to explain how today’s employers are finding a large gap between the critical thinking skills of applicants versus what is needed to compete in the ever-changing business world.
