  1. Professors should at at least try to present controversial issues in a balanced manner or somehow indicate their others may think differently than they do. It is difficult to do, and I have seen it done well on one particular website http://www.procon.org

    That said, students should learn to question authority – including the authority of their instructors. They will need to figure out for themselves whether their opinionated professor is making sense or being ridiculous. These critical thinking are essential.

    Having a professor teach his/her own students to question even the professor’s authority would go a long way to enhancing a student’s essential critical thinking skills.
