Think for Yourself - The Ultimate Guide to Critical Thinking in an Age of Information Overload

Middle school is a time of change, when things begin to look different and assumptions start to be questioned, and today more than ever it’s tough to know what to believe.

This unique and timely book won’t tell you what to think—that’s up to you!—but it will show you how to think more deeply about your own life and current events. Covering a wide range of subjects affecting the world today, including human and animal rights, social media, cyber bullying, the refugee crisis, and more, THINK FOR YOURSELF will help you to learn how to ask questions, analyze evidence, and use logic to draw conclusions, so you can solve problems and make smart decisions.

Each chapter of the book covers one key step in the critical thinking process, and includes a real-world example to help convey the importance and relevance of every step:

Ask Questions: If you want to be a critical thinker, it helps to be curious.

Gather Evidence: First, find information—from making observations to interviewing experts to researching a topic online or in books.

Evaluating Evidence: Smart thinkers evaluate the importance, accuracy and relevancy of the information they gather.

Draw Conclusions: The final step in the critical thinking process, this is based on reason and evidence.
