Project #82359 - Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking Assignment : Critical Self-Reflection Essay

In this reflective writing exercise you will analyze yourself with regard to the stage of development at which you are today as a critical thinker and your strengths and challenges in the matter of becoming a critical thinker with advanced reasoning skills.

As you internalize critical thinking concepts, models, and theories, what do you want to understand about being a fair-minded critical thinker when you leave this class that you can use in the “real world”?

Directions:
Using the concepts learned through the readings and lecture pages, write a self-reflection essay that answers the following:

  • What does critical thinking mean to you? Describe the role that critical thinking plays in your life today. Explain and offer examples of how you might further apply critical thinking in your life.
  • What does this course have to do with good thinking in general or with your particular beliefs?
  • Define and explain a point of view or primary value you sometimes rely on to guide your thinking. Briefly describe how you personally analyze and assess thinking.
  • List three inferences you have made in the past. Is it possible to separate emotions from issues that are heavily based on belief systems such as religious beliefs?

Requirements:

  • In this self-reflective assignment, you need to back up your ideas and claims with scholarly sources. Keep in mind that critical reasoning and thinking skills are not the same as opinions. While it is acceptable to write in the first person, as needed for this assignment, be sure to support your ideas with valid, reputable, and scholarly articles.
  • 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.

Your paper should be 4-5 pages in length, well written, and formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA RequirementsReview the grading rubric for this assignment, which can be accessed from the Module 2 folder, to understand exactly how you will be graded.
