Topics were flung at the class that forced me to think, and look deep inside myself. What did I really think about the world? About love? About friendship? What is happiness? All these questions opened my mind, and my soul leaving me able to think critically. After we began thinking, we switched our focus onto the text of what ever it was we were reading and analyzed the work to the last punctuation. I received profound understanding of the topic, and would often find myself analyzing when simply reading a magazine. I believe everyone at some point got this way. Feelings were held close, and some people couldn’t be swayed with their opinions. There was never a moment that the entire class agreed. But this helped. It helped us as critical thinkers, and I believe we grew as thinkers. I know I did. </li></ul>
