  1. My experience was a good one. The wheel forces me to look deeper into the article and advertisement to figure out the answers for the wheel. After that, a clearer idea of what the idea is talking about could be seen easily

  2. Though it was troublesome to find out the certain aspects of the thinking wheel, it was beneficial when it came to the understanding of the article. I realized the assumptions and implications made in articles and how these are related to the statistical chart accompanying it.
    I try to think with accordance to the thinking wheel when I read newspaper articles, it helps me to understand the writer's point of view and find out the purpose of the article and how reliable or politically correct it is.

  3. I feel that using Paul's wheel is to break down a problem into simple things that might help us better solve things and reason out right and wrong. Or otherwise make us know the concepts with hardly any problems.

  5. It was quite Positive. The thinking wheel is a good way of tackling a problem when there is no idea and telling the graph from a good graph to a bad one. The intention can also be told through the wheel.

  6. Although it was rather tedious trying to find the exact assumptions, consequences etc., it helped me to understand the articles and advertisements better, and it also helped me think whether the article/advertisement was useful.

  8. I think that my experience using Paul's wheel of Reasoning was good and I managed to grasp it well. I think it has helped me to think more critically and be more observant when viewing statistics in advertisements and newspaper articles. I am also able to understand articles and advertisements more easily than before.

  10. My experience was challenging but interesting. As I explored the article, I get to learn new things. To try and write words in the wheel was challenging as I did not fully understand the article and it was quite wordy for me. Paul's wheel of Reasoning has helped me in my thinking as I know how to "categorize" different information in the same article/passage. This way, it is easier for me to understand the article/passage if I can understand different parts of the article/passage part by part.

  11. It was a learning experience for me to use the wheel as it forced me to think more conservatively and deeper about a certain topic in an organised manner.This proved useful when I was trying to explain the charts.

  12. It gives me guiding questions so that I can an answer easily, unlike just having an ordinary wheel and filling in the answer with out any guiding questions. It also helped me to understand articles better and what they are used for. Also how they are useful to me and o other people around me.

  15. In my opinion, though Paul's wheel is quite difficult to use at first, it helps me understand the situation better by organizing my thoughts and roughly tells me how to think more efficiently by making stages in the thinking process :)

  16. A good experience. The wheel has allow us to process the article more deeply. Some aspect of the wheel can easily be unidentified but other you need to dig more into the article to find out more. It help me in our process skills which will benefit me in the future.
