Responding to Ideology, Beliefs, and Critical Thinking

Read: Elder, L., & Paul, R. (2012b). Critical thinking: Intellectual standards essential to reasoning well within every domain of human thought, Part 3. Journal of Developmental Education, 37(2), 32-33.   - Intellectual Standards.pdf

This is an exercise in examining socio-centric and ethical reasoning.  

Do the following:

  • Reflect on your mindset and a cultural belief that is a central tenet of your life.
  • Explore the benefits and challenges of egocentric thinking.
  • Identify the logic used to make the claims presented in the scholarly article.
  • Develop a logical argument with causal explanations or hypotheses, which can square egocentric thinking and cultural and religious, social or political beliefs with logic and reason.  Cite your source as evidence.
  • Be sure to adhere to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
  • Remember that critical thinking is not just your opinion; rather, it is a claim that provides evidence that helps you prove an argument.

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.

Format your discussion, including all in-text citations and references, according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements .
