The Importance of Critically Thinking Freely The process of writing is different for everyone. Some people use outlines to clearly organize their thoughts and others just start writing and go wherever that takes them. Peter Elbow teaches how to relate these two writing styles by using first-order thinking and second-order thinking.

Reading is fundamental and it involves focusing on basic literary elements, artistic skills, aesthetic features, ideas, observations, contexts, and dilemmas that will be discovered as I read more. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a story, written by James Thurber.

Rhetorical questions require common sense from the reader which concludes that it is a very powerful language technique used to persuade the reader in agreeing with the writer in ‘The Write Stuff.’ In the text ‘The Write Stuff,’ inclusive language is applied to make the reader feel engaged and drawn in to the text. Inclusive language aims to directly address the reader, either personally or as a member of a shared group. This type of language
This process will include the attitude of the writer and the principles he/she should uphold to establish the foundation of a well written research paper (Zhang, 2014).

Active learning is described as when students are doing more than just listening to a lecture. Students are more likely to discover, process and apply the information.

He needs to pay attention and notice the details in a novel and not just the general storyline. He needs to read with an open mind regardless of other people’s judgment of the novel.
But having to use critical thinking in a new field (art interpretation), I was more equipped to analyze my critical thinking abilities by seeing them in action in other fields. Overall, this project ended up helping me a lot because it showed me I could apply critical thinking to multiple fields, and that I can find analogies between things that are not directly related. I thoroughly enjoyed the project and appreciate the metacognitive skills it has helped me
