Whimsical Sponsors for Critical Thinking
George G. Klemic, Notre Dame de Namur University, CA
This paper presents a method of addressing critical thinking in the
classroom by using fictitious “sponsors” for the class.
This paper had its genesis in Boyce and Borrego’s Western Organization
and Management Teaching Conference (WOMTC) 2003 session entitled “Reading
the world: Applying critical practice in a time of uncertainty” (2003).
Boyce and Borrego suggested an approach to teaching critical thinking and
practice that involved the use of a problem posing pedagogy, rather than
a problem solving one.
