Tales from the Book Drop: While on my library shift, I thought I'd check out the many books returned at the book drop here at Gottesman Library. I stumbled upon a few potential reads, but this one particularly striked (struck?) my fancy. I was a member of my high school debate and speech team . . . yes I was part of that embarrassing nerd gang . . . and yes I was pretty awful at debating and occasionally felt like ceding halfway through debates. No shame though, just awkward high school memories and moments with uber confident, incredibly awkward high school debaters and speechies. Few students in schools are involved on debate teams, and to be involved in one is seen more as a rare opportunity. It's sort of like Glee or School Band where not everyone's involved, but a select number are. But why isn't everyone involved in the way of thinking that debate provides? Shouldn't we incorporate pedogogical methods of questioning, thinking, and debating into the classroom to develop more prepared individuals for society? Education for Thinking addresses these issues. This book entitled Education for Thinking, is written by Deanna Kuhn. Kuhn's book seeks to promote the "thinking curriculum" in schools. Education for Thinking urges educators to develop curriculum and activities "centered on inquiry and argument--such as . . . discussing difficult issues like capital punishment."
