Portfolio Project Option # 1 – Essay
Becoming a college student means that you have a responsibility to apply knowledge to advance your field and to
make the world a better place. Through practicing critical thinking skills, we learn not only to avoid being
manipulated in our thinking, but to fully support and provide evidence for our ideas. Your Critical Thinking Journal, if
you kept one, will help inform your final project.
Option #1: Write an 8 to 10 page essay (not counting required title or reference page).
Begin the process of constructing your project by choosing a particular issue or problem. It could be related to your
personal life or career path. The goal is then to align this problem or issue with a specific logic model from the text
and/or other critical thinking tools you have been learning throughout the course. As you construct your essay,
utilize critical thinking tools to evaluate your data and your credible research, interpret this data, and understand
your specific problem or issue from a broader, deeper and more focused perspective. Accessing and implementing
credible research from the CSU Global Library is vitally important in the process of constructing your final essay as it
will also be important in all your future coursework.
In constructing your essay, utilize and integrate the Elements of Thought from Chapter 5, pp. 104-122.
Your paper must:
Cite at least 6 scholarly peer-reviewed sources that are not required or recommended readings for
this course. You may include a credible website. (The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find
these resources. You may cite the textbook, but that does not count as one of the scholarly peerreviewed sources.)
Incorporate terms and concepts from the class readings and lecture pages.
Be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
