Question description

The first reading contained the following definition of critical thinking:

According to Critical Thinking as Defined by the National Council for Excellence in Critical Thinking(http://www.criticalthinking.org/pages/defining-critical-thinking/766), “Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning or communication, as a guide to belief and action” (Critical Thinking.org).

This definition uses words with which you may be unfamiliar.

First, write the definitions for the following words:

  • Conceptualizing
  • Analyzing
  • Synthesizing

Second, re-write the definition of critical thinking in your own words and give an example of a time when you applied this type of thinking in your own life.

Include citations as needed and write in first person.
