  •  Thinking skills (7+ / 0-)

    People love to mock the silly courses offered in colleges and universities, particularly in Humanities departments, and conclude that studying or teaching these things is worthless.  It's not.  What these classes teach is a whole range of what can be called "thinking skills" -- organization, history, and many kinds of analysis, among them.  These are real skills, portable from the original class, and undeniably "economically useful."  

    They may not be required for all kinds of jobs, and everyone may not be well suited to learning these kinds of skills, but they are very very real.
