Write a 3 page paper that looks at yourself as a critical thinker in the past, present, and future.
You should consider all that we have learned in the first week–from readings and discussions–about critical thinking, intellectual virtues, assumptions, and inferences. In your writing, you will want to use specific terms and make references to the information in the articles we have read (citations not needed in this assignment). You may refer to the various documents by title and author (if given). You may use terminology as if it is common knowledge (just as you would not need to cite who the first president of the US was).
Look at yourself thoughtfully and critically; you might write about some of the following:
what have been your weaknesses? your strengths?
what are your current weaknesses? strengths?
what are your biases? where did they come from?
how often do you question your assumptions?
what do you want to work on? why?
why are you who you are as a critical thinker?
how do you want to improve in the future? why?
what do you think will be difficult for you? why?
what are you looking forward to improving? why?
Note: Do NOT simply answer the above questions in a list. Your writing should be in essay form, and so should include an introduction, a thesis (stated or implied), unified paragraphs, support for the thesis, and a conclusion of some sort. You have freedom in deciding the approach–will you use narrative? expository writing?–and may use a personal tone (as opposed to academic).
Things to do:
write in first person (I, me, we, us, etc.) and third person
be sure your essay has a good flow
Use an anecdote in your essay to ground yr reader in specifics
include a look at all three parts–your past, present, and future
read your essay aloud before turning in (careless errors make me a little crazy)
Things to avoid:
writing in second person (using youor your)
announcing what you will do (“In this paper I will…”
writing a list of answers to the questions above (see Note)
not addressing all three parts–past, present, and future
careless writing errors
