Reflect: Reflect on the characteristics of a  critical thinker. Critical thinking gets you involved in a dialogue with  the ideas you read from others in this class. To be a critical thinker,  you need to be able to summarize, analyze, hypothesize, and evaluate  new information that you encounter.

Write: For this discussion, you will address the  following prompts. Keep in mind that the article or video you’ve chosen  should not be about critical thinking, but should be about someone  making a statement, claim, or argument related to your Final Paper  topic.
