Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

Assignment 1: Discussion—Analyzing Implications

Implications of arguments can be used as tools for evaluating and assessing arguments. These can help you decide whether you want to accept or support an original argument or not. In this assignment, you build on the skills you used in M3: Assignment 2, and go one step further.

Review the following articles:

Using these articles, complete the following:

  • Summarize two of the authors’ arguments (one argument from each article). 
  • Identify and discuss one further implication of each of those arguments. Assuming the author is “right,” what sorts of claims or facts would follow from that argument?

Support your statements with scholarly references. Be sure to use concepts from your readings that are relevant to the assignment.

Write your initial response in 300–400 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

By Saturday, December 10, 2016, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through Wednesday, December 14, 2016, review least two peers’ responses, using at least 75 words for each response. Comment and assess an argument identified by your peers.
