Question description

Submit Portfolio Topic

Be sure to indicate which of the two Portfolio Project options you have decided to complete and provide a one paragraph write-up briefly explaining why you selected this option. 
Refer to the various fallacies featured in the Module 4 lecture pages for terms and concepts to use to ensure your topic will be logically and objectively presented. 
You may cite additional references to support your choice of topic position. Need some more assistance with your writing mechanics or with APA style? 
Be sure to back up your feedback with concrete facts and insights based on research. 
Remember that critical thinking is not just your opinion--rather, it is a claim that provides evidence that helps you prove an argument.

Week 8 Portfolio Options

For your final Portfolio Project, you have two options. Do only one; do not do both. Indicate your selection in the file name of your project.

Begin the process of constructing your project by choosing a particular issue or problem. It could be related to your personal life or career path. The goal is then to align this problem or issue with a specific logic model from the text and/or other critical thinking tools you have been learning throughout the course. As you construct your project, utilize critical thinking tools to evaluate your data and your credible research, interpret this data, and understand your specific problem or issue from a broader, deeper and more focused perspective.

Portfolio Project Option # 1 - Essay

Becoming a college student means that you have a responsibility to apply knowledge to advance your field and to make the world a better place. Through practicing critical thinking skills, we learn not only to avoid being manipulated in our thinking, but to fully support and provide evidence for our ideas. Your Critical Thinking Journal, if you kept one, will help inform your final project.

Option #1: Write an 8 to 10 page essay (not counting required title or reference page).

Instructions:

Begin the process of constructing your project by choosing a particular issue or problem. It could be related to your personal life or career path. The goal is then to align this problem or issue with a specific logic model from the text and/or other critical thinking tools you have been learning throughout the course. As you construct your essay, utilize critical thinking tools to evaluate your data and your credible research, interpret this data, and understand your specific problem or issue from a broader, deeper and more focused perspective.

In constructing your essay, utilize and integrate the Elements of Thought from Chapter 5, pp. 104-122.

Your paper must:

  • Cite at least 6 scholarly peer-reviewed sources that are not required or recommended readings for this course. You may include a credible website 
  • Incorporate terms and concepts from the class readings and lecture pages.
  • Be formatted according to  APA Requirements 

Keep in mind the following preliminary deliverables throughout the course that will go toward completing your project:

  • Week 4: Submit Portfolio Topic

Portfolio Project Option # 2 - Presentation

Becoming a college student means that you have a responsibility to apply knowledge to advance your field and to make the world a better place. Through practicing critical thinking skills, we learn not only to avoid being manipulated in our thinking, but to fully support and provide evidence for our ideas. Your Critical Thinking Journal, if you kept one, will help inform your final project.

Option #2: Construct a power point or prezi presentation of at least 10 slides (not counting title slide or reference slide).

Instructions:

Begin the process of constructing your project by choosing a particular issue or problem. It could be related to your personal life or career path. The goal is then to align this problem or issue with a specific logic model from the text and/or other critical thinking tools you have been learning throughout the course. As you construct your presentation, utilize critical thinking tools to evaluate your data and your credible research, interpret this data, and understand your specific problem or issue from a broader, deeper and more focused perspective. Accessing and implementing credible research from the CSU Global Library is vitally important in the process of constructing your final presentation as it will also be important in all your future coursework.

In constructing your presentation, utilize and integrate the Elements of Thought from Chapter 5, pp. 104-122.

Your paper must:

  • Cite at least 6 scholarly peer-reviewed sources that are not required or recommended readings for this course.

  • Be formatted according to APA Requirements
