Find three credible sources that discuss critical thinking including Topic 1 study materials, and the other two should be found through your own research from within the library. Read the three sources and consider how they define critical thinking.
Define critical thinking and expand on what skills are needed to work through the critical thinking process and/or how critical thinking is enhanced. Keep the following guidelines in mind:
- The sources found should only influence your definition. In other words, your process should be: a) Read some definitions and descriptions of critical thinking; b) Comprehend or digest the information; and c) create a synthesized definition of critical thinking.
- Paraphrasing is preferred. Include an in-text citation whenever paraphrasing or using a direct quote. Keep direct quotes between 0-3.
- A reference page that documents the three sources you found. All sources must be cited both in-text and on the reference page.
(Note: Do not simply reword the definitions you read. Consider how you will explain what critical thinking is.)
