Question description

This course thus far has placed the emphasis on actively developing your thinking. Everything in the course has been educationally designed in order to guide you to become better at critical thinking. You will therefore not be asked to memorize information. Instead, you will be required to actively participate in class so that you can improve your thinking.

Think about learning to think as you would of learning any new skill. A new skill requires that you first learn the fundamentals of that skill, then practice the fundamentals every day. The same is true about learning how to critically think and reason.

You must practice the essential standards of thinking fundamentals every day. Therefore, this class has been designed with the primary purpose of helping you develop your thinking and reasoning skills. Why is this important? Because the quality of every decision you make will be directly determined by the quality of your reasoning abilities. In fact the quality of your life in general, will be determined by how well you think in general.

Directions

  • The first step in understanding and conducting a self-assessment is to reflect back on your intellectual critical thinking journal and begin to analyze your own claims, (premises) assumptions, and facts.
  • Provide 6-8 scholarly research sources that you might consider using for your final essay. Give a short reason why each would be pertinent to your Portfolio Project. This is not expected to be a final list. The goal here is to motivate you to begin examining research that might help you in your final Portfolio Project. Add a reference section for your research sources. These references should include scholarly articles, 1-2 books, and 2-4 academic credible websites. Make sure you use APA.
  • Remember, next week (Week 7), you will practice your critical thinking skills by offering feedback on other students’ work.

Submit your work for credit by Sunday, no later than 11:59 p.m., MT.

Sources and Citations: Cite two scholarly sources to back up your claims, assumptions, and facts. You are encouraged to use the readings for the course. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find your sources.

Your paper, including citations and references, should be 4-5 pages in length, well written, and all source citations (including the reference page) should be formatted per the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA.

Critical Thinking Analysis

Critical thinking is a process that requires the individual to be aware of the surrounding in
order to act appropriately. A person requires to ask themselves several questions. First, it is
important to identify the things that are happening. This way, they will manage to know the
basics of the issue. Secondly, one has to question the importance of that issue at that time.

The third question that a critical thinker has to ask is about the hidden happenings
concerning the issue. The step involves identifying the crucial parts of every happening. Some of
the issues are usually positioned in a way that they appear to be missing in the real issue.
Another question is about the fact of the known quantity compared to the unknown (Staff, 2017).
This also forms a base for identifying the means through which the concepts were formed in the
mind. For this reason, the meanings of every situation have to be established in order to verify

Critical thinking should be sensitive to the surrounding environment which dictates the
position of the person. It also involves identifying the position of the other concerned people
