Writer’s Block

Arion is suffering from a bout of writer’s block. Several hours ago, she confidently penned the final parts of her paper and presentation for her coming workshop’s session. However, she discovered a huge mistake that she should have noticed as she wrote. The content was not at all suitable for the intended audience.

An inhumane attempt on explaining syllogism, modus ponens, modus tollens, post hoc ergo propter hoc, and various conditional chain arguments, that will either bore the students to death or increased the tumult of their minds. Socrates would be proud but not the fresh-years. Her session in the workshop will not be longer than two hours. In such a short amount of time, she should successfully plant the seeds of critical thinking in the students’ minds.

No other choice, this has to be rewritten! The question is, how? As she pondered, her stomach started to make an uproarious commotion. She glanced at the wall clock to realise that it is dinner time soon, and she had missed lunch.

    Actually yes, but critical thinking can be applied to readings and writings as well, which of course, do not required assessing body languages. ^^
