Required Resources
Read/review the following resources for this activity:

  • Textbook: Chapter 16
  • Lesson

Remember – these journal questions  require more thinking than writing. Think about exactly what you are  asked to do, and then write as economically as possible.


  • Critical Thinking
    • Go back to your very first journal entry – review your definition of  critical thinking. After studying critical thinking for the past eight  weeks, would you change your definition in any way? If yes, how and why?  If no – if it was perfect – what parts of the text were best reflected  in your definition?
  • Heart of the Matter
    • Recall in your first journal entry that you discussed the authors’  statement that the concepts in Chapters 12, 13 and 14 were “the heart of  the matter.” After having studied those chapters, answer again, with  renewed understanding, the question posed there: Why do you think the  authors find these concepts important to critical thinking?
  • Ethical Decision-Making
    • The lecture claims that an argument is no good unless it has a  “strong and reasoned ethical base.” Do you agree that ethics is an  essential element of a good argument? If yes, why? If no, why not?
  • Looking Forward
    • Do you believe that you now know everything you need to know about  critical thinking – or is learning to think critically a life-long task?  Explain your answer.
