Unit IV PowerPoint Presentation

Select and describe an important problem faced by society today (e.g., income inequality, gun violence, online privacy). Once you have selected your problem, be prepared to address the following in your presentation:

  • Provide your own analysis by asking—and answering—a relevant question from at least three domains of thinking. Examples of these can be found on pages 139-140 of your textbook.

  • The intellectual standards will help you better think about your chosen problem. In your answers to the above questions, apply at least three intellectual standards and explain why the standards are important in this context (i.e., the standards of reasoning which apply to the elements). The standards are discussed in Chapter 5 on pages 91-103.

  • Explain why each question you have selected is either a question of fact, preference, or judgment. This information can be located on pages 126-127 of your textbook.

  • Finally, in one paragraph, reflect on your analysis of the problem that you selected, and describe how your consideration of this problem demonstrates deep learning. This information can be located on pages 144-145 of your textbook.

    To accomplish this, you must compose a 12 slide PowerPoint presentation that meets the guidelines below. Your PowerPoint slides should be arranged in the following manner:

  • Slide 1: The problem selected and your description of it.

  • Slides 2-5: Provide your own analysis by asking—and answering—a relevant question from at least three domains of thinking.

  • Slides 6-8: Your three intellectual standards and explanation of why they are important in this context.

  • Slides 9-11: Explain why each question is question of fact, preference, or judgment.

  • Slide 12: Conclusion slide with your one paragraph that reflects on your analysis and describes your consideration and learning of this problem.

    You must also include a title and reference slide (that does not count towards your total slides). Also, all sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA format.

    Unit VI Essay

    Provide an example from your own experience where you acted in accordance with one or more of the patterns of irrational or unethical decision making. Explain the egocentrism or sociocentrism, as well as any pathological tendencies of mind, involved in your thought process. How could you have applied the keys to sound decision making to approach the situation more rationally?

    If you prefer not to discuss your own decision making experience, you may instead discuss someone you know, a historical figure, or a fictional character.

    Your response should be at least two pages in length and should be typed using 12-point Times New Roman font. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA format. The title and reference page do not count towards the two-page minimum.

    Unit VIII Reflection Paper

    Provide an example of a possible confusion between theological beliefs and ethical principles in a commonly-held religious belief system. Are there practices within this faith that might be critiqued as unethical? How should we apply the fundamentals of ethical reasoning in this case?

    Your response should be at least two pages in length and should be typed using 12-point Times New Roman font. You are required to use at least your textbook and one scholarly article from any database within the CSU Online Library as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA format. The title and reference page do not count towards the two-page minimum. PHL 1010, Critical Thinking 4
