Find three sources that discuss critical thinking. One source should be from the assigned and/or optional readings, and the other two should be found through your own research. Read the three sources, and consider how they define critical thinking.
In 300-500 words, explain your own personal definition of critical thinking. Keep
the following guidelines in mind:
- Select a direct quote from one of your resources to include in your explanation.
- A reference page that documents the three sources you found (and any other resources you used) is required. Remember, all outside sources must be cited both in-text and on your reference page.
- The articles you found in your research may influence your definition, but your own ideas should be evident. In other words, your process should be: a) Read some definitions and descriptions of critical thinking; b) Comprehend or digest the information; and c) Write your own definition of critical thinking.
(Note: Do not simply reword the definitions you read. Consider a new way to explain what you understand critical thinking to be.)
