How many pages is this assigment?

  1. Select a direct quote from one of your resources to include in your explanation.
  2. A reference page that documents the three sources you found (and any other resources you used) is required. Remember, all outside sources must be cited both in-text and on your reference page.
  3. The articles you found in your research may influence your definition, but your own ideas should be evident. In other words, your process should be: a) Read some definitions and descriptions of critical thinking; b) Comprehend or digest the information; and c) Write your own definition of critical thinking.

(Note: Do not simply reword the definitions you read. Consider a new way to explain what you understand critical thinking to be.)
