This workshop, reused in podcast form with permission of Heart of the Matter Online and Ashley Wiggers of Homeschooling Today, is a rebroadcast of a workshop taught by Debbie Strayer during at the 2009 HOTMonline Conference.
This first segment (one of three) focuses on the need for a natural teaching approach to developing the important skill of critical thinking. This skill can be taught and learned in all ages through all subjects without a dedicated class, topic or curriculum.
Listen to Debbie's wisdom and insight gained from years of training and experience.

What does Garbage In, Garbage Out have to do with our minds?
What consumes our minds, controls our lives. And, what controls our lives affects those around us, husbands, children, friends, colleagues and even acquaintances.
This series on The End in Mind spends time talking about the power our minds have over every area of our lives, but most importantly, how our minds affect our spiritual stability. Philippians 4:8 makes it pretty clear as to what we should be "thinking on." Join us as we explore this passage of Scripture and apply it to our marriages, parenting, homeschooling and more. Thinking on the right things will ultimately affect the end result of our lives. Let's begin our thoughts with The End in Mind.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-thing about such things.
