Think Bubbles and Socrates: Teaching Critical Thinking to Millennials in Public Relations Classes
Tallent, Rebecca J.; Barnes, Justin J.
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v3 n7 p435-441 2015
Critical thinking skills are crucial in the public relations profession, but teaching these skills to the Millennial Generation is vastly different from previous generations. How can a professor get past No Child Left Behind's dependence on test review guides and "everybody wins" in getting students to think for themselves? Using the Socratic method along with thinking tools/exercises, students can learn how to devise their own solutions using quality critical and creative thinking.
