leaders for tomorrow. In today's fast-paced
information world society is facing many complex problems. Acid rain is
killing our forests, global warming is reducing food production, and the
protective ozone layer is being depleted. At a time when the planet's ecological
resources are dwindling, the world population is expected to double. As
we enter the next millennium, the need for creative solutions has never
been more urgent. To help my students prepare for their leadership roles
of tomorrow, I provide instruction on ways to develop and enhance analytic
reasoning skills. This type of instruction focuses on understanding
problem, evaluating all alternatives and creating viable
solutions. I try to help
my students recognize the importance of thinking critically about their
world and the challenges they will face in the next millennium.
