Davidson How many times have we said that we're not creative? What do we mean by "not creative? We call on this process daily without knowing that we are participating in a creative process. We use creative processes for avoiding engagement in the creative process. We use creative processes for avoiding situations which might involve our perceived noncreativity.
Because we are unaware of our participation, we assume that our creative processes do not exist. These issues are discussed in Chapter I. Chapter II looks at how we regard our own previous panoramas of the creative process1 our perceptions of our own and other persons' creative processes, Einsteilung as one way by which we look into these views beyond the time when they might be inapplicable, and the possible use of reperception as an unbinding of the past and a new viewing of the present for considering creative processes in ourselves and others.
As an overview of the creative process, Chapter III is a literature search which helps us understand why creative processes are so difficult to recognize and describe.
We learn that no two writers view creative processes in the same way, that creative processes have many facets and exist on numerous planes, that we cannot return to a specific point in a creative process and describe it exactly, and that creative processes are basically inexplicable because we lack a specific creative process vocabulary for an explanation.
One commonality emerges if we look at creative processes from a wide overview: If we are to view ourselves as creative then we need to look at ourselves anew, to reperceive ourselves as being creative Having decided to view ourselves as being creative, we will be more able to access our innate creative process and build on it to enhance our lives.
Murray "The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature, by the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power. Specifically, it is intended to introduce and actively engage the reader in the application of critical thinking processes through an analysis of the history and status of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, or CEDAW.
Given the potential significance of CEDAW for the United States, it is ironic that this human rights treaty is not commonplace in discussions regarding women's rights. Many associate the women's rights movement with efforts during the s to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, or ERA.
Some may recall that the ERA was penned in after the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified, or simply the efforts to secure voting rights for women. Few, however, associate the women's movement with international efforts to codify such rights into law through treaties such as CEDAW.
Ina Fourth World Conference for Women followed. Of all of the documents produced, however, CEDAW stand alone as a legally binding treaty which, under Article II, section 2 of the Constitution, has the potential to become " The central hypothesis of the studies is that critical thinking enables the public to determine if information is accurate, reliable, relevant and sufficient to support of refute a given option.
Correlated with the fundamental premise that a democracy requires a well informed citizenry, is that information must be accessible and citizen need to think critically. Upon these premises rests the hope that the resultant standards will be applied in the adjudication of the important social issues.
This thesis asserts that issues of substance can easily be obscured and even discarded when selective emphasis is placed on secondary issues. Analyses of CEDAW are made with respect to medial presentation, US Senate proceedings, and provocative topics, which served to prevent the public from being well-informed.
The results of these analyses reveal an astounding degree of misinformation in the form of omission, Bias, digression, fragmentation, contradiction, and general confusion that continues to obscure CEDAW from public consideration and debate.
Although, through an in-depth critical analysis the status of this treaty may be tragically unclear, the flaws in the treatment of human rights issues, a well as path of correction, are exposed for public consideration.
In sum, critical thinking processes are viewed as necessary to protect the public's perception of the issues. Absent critical thinking, the public may fall prey of misinformation. Through its use, it is hoped that a higher level of humanity, understanding, and truth will emerge within the process and as the product of the sound and careful reasoning.
Cordeiro The importance of good instruction in reading education has long been recognized. What constitutes good instruction and what materials should be used have been the focus of much debate, however, over the years.
Two relatively new movements in education have recently added fuel to that debate, namely the movements in critical thinking and whole language. The fundamental purpose of the thinking skills movement is the development of higher level thinking in students.
In the area of reading this means that students should be challenged by questions and problems in literature which cause them to go beyond a literal understanding.
They should be taught to interpret and evaluate all types of literature. To facilitate critical thinking, advocates for the movement suggest that educators provide opportunities for students to problem solve in pairs or small groups. They encourage a non-judgmental classroom atmosphere which allows students freedom of thought.
Some educators utilize a list of relevant thinking skills and teach thinking strategies and methods directly using these skills as a backdrop.Social exchange theory is a social psychological perspective that explains social change and stability as a process of negotiated exchanges between parties.
Social exchange theory posits that all human relationships are formed by the use of a subjective cost-benefit analysis and the comparison of alternatives. exchange theory - is a social psychological and sociological perspective that explains social change and stability as a process of negotiated exchanges between parties.
