David has been assisting these youth find their way through the teaching of common sense, critical thinking and reason. Have You Ever Been To Sea? is a story and a guide about what youth can achieve. Much of the content is based on actual events and although the book is not meant to be an exhaustive study of critical thinking many key concepts are explored in an easy to read format. Parents, service providers, teachers and anyone involved with youth can use the book as a tool to help youth ask the tough questions that will challenge them to move forward and exercise self regulation. Years of application proves that the process works. It's not easy and it is not a 'quick fix.' Changing the way we think takes effort, practice and patience. ~ Wisdom comes in many forms, and when it comes in the form of an engaging story, it is a treat. Have You Ever Been to Sea? is a story of friendship and personal growth, and more importantly it illustrates the critical thinking skills that have been at the heart of David Rossi's educational practice for 20 years. These common sense strategies are dramatized through the relationship between Billy, a youth drifting through life, and Mike, the wanderer who becomes his mentor. In many ways the story is a conversation, and like the best conversations it is engaging in the moment but leaves us with more: in this case a common sense model for critical thinking. - Craig Smith, Adult Academic and Career Preparation Coordinator, Okanagan College.
