After viewing the material in the required readings this week, develop an initial posting of one or two paragraphs that analyzes one topic related to moral reasoning and ethics. Examples of topics include your portfolio paper topic, a current issue covered in the media, an ongoing political issue or debate, or even a personal example.
Then discuss the qualities of a critical thinker, as those apply to the required readings for this module. Incorporate any terms or concepts covered throughout the course. (NOTE: Use this discussion as a place to work out the defining of terms and concepts that you might use in your portfolio paper.)
Next, take time to reflect on the reasoning and critical thinking concepts learned in this course. Describe any areas that are still challenging for you. Provide examples that demonstrate how your critical thinking skills have improved. Because critical thinking improves with practice, how are you planning to continually improve your skills?
As always, reply to the postings of at least two fellow students. In your replies, focus on aesthetic reasoning, moral and ethical reasoning, and legal reasoning. Back up your thoughts and feedback with concrete facts and insights informed by research.
Discussion question responses should be at least 200-300 words.
Include at least 1-2 scholarly sources that are not required or recommended readings for this course. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these sources.
