LSS 5100 Unit III Discussion Board (***** 3 Pages + APA Format + References *****)
In Unit II, you learned that to become a critical thinker, you must develop certain skills. Some of those skills include, but are not limited to: recognizing assumptions; evaluating old information and new ideas; producing new ideas based on sound evidence; analyzing problems; communicating with clarity; managing emotions in response to a situation or problem; and judging your sources. Whether you are changing careers, or furthering your education in your current field, professional and personal development critical thinking skills help you learn from and with others of diverse backgrounds and interests (Anderson & Media, n.d.).
First, take the attached Critical Thinking Assessment Practice Quiz and then post an answer to these questions, in paragraph form:
1. Which questions did you find the most difficult and why?
2. Which questions did you find to be easiest and why?
3. How do you think working on your critical thinking skills will help you in graduate school? In your current or future profession?
