Developing critical thinking skills can be fun with ideas to get learners thinking on their feet in your class. Everywhere we go in the world, we ask teachers what they feel are the most important skills for modern learners. Here are some you can't go wrong with. However, no matter where they hail from, one of the most common among them is effectively developing critical thinking skills. Thinking critically is the pinnacle of the accumulation of knowledge and experience. How can we start developing our learners' critical thinking skills rather than teaching to the test?

A boy becomes a man, in four long years.
He learns that the issues that divide us are
never as clearly defined as we might wish.
Fighting and dying can mean everything,
and nothing. Loyalty and love bring joy and pain.
It's what we all do, as we grow, everywhere we are. And that is the real beauty of this tale.
Action, drama, comedy, battle, saints and sinners... It's all here, well told. You can't help but care about them all. Yankees and Rebels.
Natives and Settlers. Blacks and Whites.
You hate to see either side lose.
We could use some of that now.
To have it served up in a fine story
of adventure and danger, love and intrigue,
is icing on a mighty fine cake. Enjoy!

A somewhat slow start that might deter some younger readers, but once the central character experiences battle for the first time the pace of the narrative is admirably managed and there are moments of real tension and suspense. This novel does not glorify military action in any way, nor does it laud one side over the other in its depiction of a complex political episode in American history. While the presentation of the African American characters, both in appearance and dialogue, is very much of its time, that of the Native Americans is entirely convincing.

Altogether, this seems to be a worthwhile, thought-provoking read for those in their early teenage years.

Things are not as black and white as Jeff thought and this causes him to struggle as he joins the Union Army in the Civil War. The book is well written and captivates as it teaches the war wasn't about slavery for many. It presents a balanced view from sides of the war many never learn about. This tale makes me wish the story has continued in another book set in the reconstruction period following the war. An enjoyable read for all ages.

Rifles for Watie is a book about the Civil War that is written for school age readers. Despite the intended audience, this book is every bit as interesting for an adult reader.

The author, Harold Keith interviewed, many Civil War veterans living in Oklahoma and found that he had enough information to write a historical novel. As a result, his battle stories pack in the absurd incidents of war intermixed with its horror. In one case, a new recruit rides into battle wearing his wedding suit-he'd joined right after his marriage. The groom is killed in the suit in that same battle.

Oklahoma (then called Indian Territory) and Missouri was packed with adherents of both sides of the war. Consequently the war is very cruel and personal. Keith takes this fact in full. The reader very much gets the cruelty of the war in the descriptive passages.

In researching the book, Keith was able to meet with veterans of both sides. To get that info out-to tell the whole tale of the Missouri/Oklahoma theater of war-Keith uses an interesting literary tactic. He tells the tale through the eyes of Jeff Bussey, a cornpone eating teenage Kansas Pioneer who joins up for the Union. Bussey then becomes a spy, serving in the Confederate Army with the purpose of keeping an eye out for a shipment of rifles for Confederate General Stand Watie and his men.

I was in grade school when our teacher read this wonderful work of art to us. Being a young man raised in Southwestern Arkansas in the 1950`s I was taken by this story of the War of Northern Aggression in the area that I lived. I was destined to walk those battlegrounds and think of this story most of my life. I forgot the romance of war during a tour in Viet Nam but I never forgot this wonderful book. This story was a driving force in my life that guided me to Duty, Honor, and Country.

I ordered this book, "Rifles for Waite," because I am somewhat of a Civil War in Oklahoma buff and remember reading this book back in Junior High School in the 1960s in an Oklahoma History class. Since I could not remember the details of the book I decided to read it again as an adult. The book is covered in a hard, glossy cardboard cover with updated artwork. It is the perfect size to carry on an airplane, which I did as soon as I received it. It is easy reading and has an interesting fictional storyline, based on actual testimony of living Civil War veterans personally interviewed by the author (a former University of Oklahoma History Professor) back in the early 20th Century. The description of life on the Kansas-Missouri border, as well as facts about the Five Civilized Tribes in Oklahoma (and their connection with the War of Northern Agression) was of particular interest to me. "Rifles for Waite" reads similarly to "The Red Badge of Courage." another school time book club read. Every school age child should read this book, and I highly recommend it for adults as well.

I remember reading this when I was a youngster many years ago, but reading it again after all this time it's like reading it for the first time.
One thing about the Kindle version... I've read about 16% of it and it has a number of typographical errors. Some of the other Kindle books I've read have had a few, but Rifles For Waite seems to have a considerably higher number than any of the others. Seems that Kindle books need to have better proof reading.
In 1958 I had a librarian give me this book to read. I used to walk up to the public high school from my elementary school. There I could find adventures of all kinds to take home to our farm house. There I would crouch next to the window in my bedroom until I couldn't read the pages anymore. This was one of the books I couldn't put down. Later as a teenager I bought the book for myself.
Now at 72, I buy it about the 4th This time for another grandson.
