Use the critical thinking challenges in this novel study to help students explore the habit of mind of independent-mindedness and to nurture a sense of personal identity in the face of social pressure.

This book makes you think. Are you really being yourself? Or are you hiding your personality to be a person you are not?

It [the novel study] changed the way I think during any situation. I also realized that before, most of the decisions I made were non-independent minded. Now I feel more confident and independent-minded.

I think that collaborative thinking is a more powerful learning experience than answering a series of comprehension questions. The reason I think this is because you can hear the other ideas of classmates and that could change your opinion completely.
