    Critical thinking is an essential skill in today's world, but it's not always easy to teach. These strategies can help.

    Critical thinking is knowing how to assess and discern the information we receive. We make our decisions based on that information and on our evaluation of it, so we need to know how to think clearly.

    This skill is essential in today’s world, as we are flooded with information from so many sources. The Holy Father himself has spoken of the importance of this skill:

    We are living in an information-driven society which bombards us indiscriminately with data—all treated as being of equal importance—and which leads to remarkable superficiality in the area of moral discernment. In response, we need to provide an education which teaches critical thinking and encourages the development of mature moral values. (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium)

    As important as critical thinking is, it seems increasingly rare and hard to find.

    Contrary to popular belief, analytical and critical thinking skills are REQUIRED when studying Scripture. English Language Arts classes teach these skills using literature. The Holy Bible is the most influential piece of literature in existence. While not as glamorous as some other classes, English Language Arts is potentially one of the most powerful high school subjects in the internet age.

    The pen is mightier than the sword. With a sword, I can either save or end a life. With a pen, I can either save or end entire civilizations. USE THIS POWER RESPONSIBLY!!! (James 3, Proverbs 6:12-19, 12:18, 18:21, 26:17-28, Revelation 20:11-15, 22:12-17).
