Below is a link to an interesting article that argues that many students have lost the ability to think for themselves.  I certainly agree with the idea that many students are only interested in the question “what do I need to do to get a top grade?”.  However, I would be horrified if my students lacked the ability to think for themselves in the way some of the students in this article are portrayed.  What do you think?
