CRITICAL THINKING IN EVERYDAY LIFE

 

The Latest Version 

 

HUM 115 Week 1 Critical Thinking (2019 Latest)
 

Developing critical thinking skills is an important journey. This week, you were introduced to the topic of critical thinking and had the opportunity to complete a self-evaluation related to your critical thinking skills. You also learned about the barriers that one can encounter in critical thinking and the characteristics of a good critical thinker. This assignment will help you to put it all together and apply what you have learned to your own life.

 

Tips:

Assignments are opportunities to demonstrate what you have learned. Please review course materials and reflect on what you have learned before attempting the worksheet.

 

 

 

 

Worksheet questions may contain multiple questions. In order to earn full credit, students substantively respond to all parts of the question.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Question #2 asks about critical thinking barriers. These are specific to thinking, not generalized issues that may come up in life. Please refer to “critical thinking” barriers (See topic discussion starting on page 21).
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Question #3 requires completion of the self-evaluation questionnaire on page 7 and the analysis on page 435. Results of your personal evaluation are compared to the list of 8 characteristics listed in the worksheet. Simply discussing the characteristics listed without relating these to your self-evaluation results will be an incorrect response.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Consider how it may benefit you to work toward a higher word count response rather than to a minimum requirement.

Others will be contained in audio or video clips.  After reviewing each example, you will be given a list of possible fallacies presented in the example. Your goal is to identify the fallacy presented in the material you just experienced.

Assignment video transcript.docx

 

In Week Four, we learned that critical thinking arguments, are not the casual/common angry discussions we can have with family or friends. A critical thinking argument is a well-developed point of view or position on an issue.

 

As a critical thinker, it is important to understand the elements of an argument/point of view and how certain types of statements can affect the validity of that point of view. As you learned in the readings this week, arguments are used to convince us of an outcome. You read about how to identify an issue, the role that rhetoric and evidence play in establishing credibility and supporting a point of view, and the different types of arguments you may encounter.

 

In this assignment, students will first choose one of five issues. Next, students choose a specific point of view/argument as part of that overall issue, to evaluate. Do not use the information that comes up when you open the link. This is general reference material about the issue, not a point of view article. Follow the directions in the video to select your article. Respond to questions based upon the viewpoint of the article you selected, (not your own view on this topic). Remove your personal opinions, biases and prior feelings about the issue to demonstrate an impartial analysis of the point of view presented by the author of the article you selected.

 

You may agree or disagree with the author’s point of view. It may be weak or strong. Students are graded on an unbiased analysis, not the strength/weakness of the point of view of the author you chose. You may find it more challenging to choose an article point of view that you disagree with to test your impartiality.

HUM 115 Week 5 Applying Critical Thinking Reflection (2019 Latest)
 

Over the past five weeks you have learned about different elements related to critical thinking. You related the concepts to your personal experiences, and evaluated your critical thinking skills. You’ve identified fallacies, evaluated arguments, and learned the role of these concepts in your daily life. Now it’s time to apply the concepts. In this assignment, you will review a real-world scenario and apply the critical thinking skills you have developed.

 

Review the Critical Thinking Scenario.

 

Write a 350- to 700-word reflection on the scenario, using the Reflection Template. Follow the instructions within the template to complete your reflection. You will need to include an introduction paragraph to introduce your reader to the topics you will be discussing; 3 body paragraphs, each with specific questions that need to be addressed within; and a conclusion paragraph to bring your paper to a close.

 

Note: The Reflection Template is already formatted appropriately, and you do not need to make any changes to the format. Be sure to demonstrate your critical thinking abilities in your responses to the questions, and ensure your paper flows well from topic to topic.
