Critical Thinking with Lisa Nehring

In this episode we’ll define Critical Thinking skills, examine why they are necessary and begin to talk about how to teach them.Critical Thinking skills are “An ability to use reason to move beyond the acquisition of facts to uncover deep meaning,” according to Robert Weissberg.

 

In this episode we’ll define Critical Thinking skills, examine why they are necessary and begin to talk about how to teach them.

 

Word Study: Critical Thinking Skills come from the Greek word “Kriticos” (meaning discerning judgement) and “criterion” (meaning standards). Critical Thinking Skills mean the word implies the development of “discerning judgment based on standards.”

 

A critical thinker can deduce as well as infer- they are both an information gathering and a problem solver.

Someone with critical thinking skills is able to do the following:

  • Solve problems systematically and sequentially with the ability to communicate them clearly
  • Understand and identify important ideas and to whom they are relevant
  • Make logical connections between ideas, across subject matter and time
  • Create, organize, deliver and evaluate arguments
  • Identify inconsistencies, errors and fallacies in reasoning
  • Reflect on, identify and offer an apologetic for one’s own core beliefs and values

Critical thinkers are constantly building upon their knowledge and experience. They are able to integrate how data and information can be used to develop, recognize and predict patterns of knowledge and behavior.

How do we teach Critical Thinking?

 

“Critical thinking skills are far more predictive of making positive life decisions than raw intelligence.” ~ Heather Butler

Work Ethic Interview with Val Harrison of Practically Speaking Mom

Val Harrison of Practically Speaking Mom and I continue the discussion about teaching our kids the Soft Skill of Work Ethic and Val has some Godly, practical advice.  #podcastVal Harrison of Practically Speaking Mom and I continue the discussion about teaching our kids the Soft Skill of Work Ethic and Val has some Godly, practical advice.

Work Ethic teaches our kids

  1. Purpose, self-worth and a Godly self-perception
  2. Humility and service- they are the center of the universe!
  3. Empathy- the ability and desire to help others!
  4. Increase confidence- they know they can do thing, be successful and contribute well!

Ephesians 2:10

If Mom’s try to do everything, instead of delegating.

  • Moms can’t accomplish all that they are called to do
  • Others can’t accomplish all that they are called to do
  • Trying to do everything keeps Mom’s worn out and at their worst- they can’t do thing with excellence.
  • Trying to do everything, instead of delegating, keeps your family week.

Kids need to have obstacle, to learn to over-come, to not “settle, and to learn to not cut corners.

Val share about the 100% rule

We want to lead out kids to abundant living so that they can become all that they were designed to be!

Those with Work Ethic Practice

  1. Professionalism Professionalism is such a broad category, in fact, that it basically encompasses all the other elements of a strong work ethic.
  2. Respectfulness-You display grace under pressure.
  3. Dependability– You can be relied on to keep your promises..
  4. Dedication– You don’t stop until the job is done, and done right.
  5. Determination– With purpose and resilience, you push ahead, no matter how far you have to go.
  6. Accountability -You take personal responsibility for your actions and outcomes. You don’t make excuses.
  7. Humility

You acknowledge everyone’s contributions, and freely share credit for accomplishments and show gratitude. You have integrity, are willing to learn from others and you strive always to maintain a sense of humor about yourself.

 

Lack of Work Ethic:

  • Tardiness – not getting to where they need to be in a timely manner
  • Failure to notify of an absence – just not showing up at all with no explanation or concern on for those they have left hanging
  • Insubordination –not being willing to submit to those in authority, being disrespectful
  • Rude or abusive language
  • Failure to follow department, company or family rules or culture- every unit has a culture and those with a poor work ethic or not concerned with influencing that culture in a positive way.
  • Dishonesty- this can include obvious lying and less obvious suppression of facts and information.
  • Theft –this can include property, fraud, and reputation- little to no concern for the sovereignty of others.

 

Remember-hard work is about productivity but also about efficiency. Limit Activities that get you nowhere. Everyone has 24 hours in a day, 168 hours in a week 8,760 hours in a year

 

To instill Work Ethic in our Kids:

1.     Create opportunities for your kids to work young and often.

2.     Don’t hire away all the tough jobs.

3.     Treat their studies as a work ethic training ground.

4.     Let them suffer the consequences of failing to work hard.

5.     Model a consistent work ethic in your own life..

6.     Treat having a work ethic as an element of character.

 

Hard work betrays none. Hachiman Hikigaya

Story Stealers, the Wide-Eyed Wonder of following Rabboni Jesus and Soft Skills

Soft Skills are not just for vocational, academic and familial success but integral to walking out lives of integrity. In this show I talk about Story Stealers, the Wide-Eyed Wonder of following Rabboni Jesus and Soft Skills. #podcast #homeschoolSoft Skills are not just for vocational, academic and familial success but integral to walking out lives of integrity. In this show I talk about Story Stealers, the Wide-Eyed Wonder of following Rabboni Jesus and Soft Skills.

“For we let our young men and women go out unarmed, in a day when armour was never so necessary. By teaching them all to read, we have left them at the mercy of the printed word. By the invention of the film and the radio, we have made certain that no aversion to reading shall secure them from the incessant battery of words, words, words. They do not know what the words mean; they do not know how to ward them off or blunt their edge or fling them back; they are a prey to words in their emotions instead of being the masters of them in their intellects.”
― Dorothy L. Sayers, The Lost Tools of Learnin

Isaiah 6:8 was purposeful and real, “I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

What is a Story Stealer? Someone who claims a story that isn’t theirs. Story stealing is a fundamental compromise of integrity and a fundamental compromise of respect.

The whole point of soft skills is to establish a life style of determining and living by Truth.

There are two great sins in life.

  • Not doing what you are called to do; deserting your duty or being faithless because you don’t have the chutzpah to embrace the wonder and the suffering (Gen 26:24-25.)
  • Doing what is not yours to do, taking someone else’s place, right, name, duty or story and claiming it for yourself (Genesis 33-50)

 

Soft Skills training is, most importantly, about pointing our kids character to the one character who is holy, true and beautiful. Truth, in the person of Jesus Christ, who is all Beauty and all Goodness.

Next month we’ll dive into the Soft Skill of Work Ethic! Listen, download and share our podcast!

Flexibility and Adaptability: Interview with Vicki Tillman, of Seven Sisters

In this show Vicki Tillman, of Seven Sisters, shares insight into flexibility and adaptability as part of our podcast series. #podcast #homeschoolIn this show Vicki Tillman, of Seven Sisters, shares insight into flexibility and adaptability.

“Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.” G.K.Cheserton

Resiliency- the ability to jump back when disappointments and failure hit.

Failure is not an end point- we need to teach our kids to get back up and try again.

Often failure ends up being blown out of proportion- we need to learn from it.

IN Homeschooling, we often feel like all eyes on our us and we have to respond as Mary Poppins.

We need grace so that we can let some things go. We can’t be all things at all times

  • great mom
  • great cook
  • great homeschooler

Time management is so important but we also have to let go of our ideas.

Rely on grace and the strength of God to bounce back.

Be careful to not get sucked into disappointments and OUR laws of the universe- How things “must” be.

  • Teach our kids to learn to lean into the things that they enjoy
  • Develop strengths
  • Lean into the market –what does it take to be hip? What are the trends? How can our kids be relevant and strategic in today’s world?
  • Guard against FOMA culture (Fear of Missing Out).

Gratitude can change your Brain- teach your kids the art of being grateful and keeping a gratitude journal!

Teach a daily written gratitude list

Be sure and check out part 1 of this interview here if you missed it!

Colleges may no longer expect foreign language for admittance, but proficiency in a foreign language can equal scholarship money and international travel, including opportunities that may occur even after students are admitted and have begun college studies.

Asian languages

  • Underrepresented in the U.S. in language studies.
  • Mandarin is the fastest growing language study in the U.S.
  • Shows that students are not afraid of a challenge
  • Perfect for military, economics, politics, business.
  • A sweet spot right now for those looking for unique opportunities.

2/3 of the world speak Chinese, Spanish and English.

Mandarin has the most native speakers in the world.

What about Special Needs Student and Foreign Language learning?

Chinese is different because it is pictographic

Because Chinese is tonal, teachers use music and various modes

Utilizing live classes, small groups

Analogous Learning: Surprise benefit of learning a foreign language is learning the grammar of your own language

Flexibility and Adaptability: Foreign Language Adaptability with Ali Thomas of NiHao Chinese

Guest Ali Thomas, co-owner of NiHao Chinese, is here with us today talking about Flexibility and Adaptability, especially in regards to Foreign Language Acquisition. #podcastGuest Ali Thomas, co-owner of NiHao Chinese, is here with us today talking about Flexibility and Adaptability, especially in regards to Foreign Language Acquisition.

Learning a foreign language and international travel helps you understand people and cultures different than yourself- develops flexibility and adaptability as well as empathy and compassion.

When Ali was a young adult she traveled alone to Nghệ An Province in Viet Nam.

Trying new things may include failing. We need to look at  failing is just a jumping off point- we have to lean into the fear- and realize that no one is a professional at facing down fear.

  1. First time we do something is the hardest- but we learn what’s possible.
  2. We have to be willing to course correct.
  3. Develops our human gift of curiosity

Professor Joe Fuller of Harvard Business School- we are preparing our kids for jobs that don’t exist yet, work and industries are changing quickly but the one constant students need regardless of the future is Soft Skills. Emotional IQ is the commodity of the future!

  • You can’t outsource them
  • They can’t be digitized

Romans 12:2 “Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking.”

 “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” – Nelson Mandela
