Students will demonstrate their critical thinking skills
In the SIGNATURE ASSIGNMENT students will demonstrate their critical thinking skills, and practice written communication and information literacy skills, by addressing a problem/issue directly relevant to the current legislative policy and political debate. The goal of the Signature Assignment is to achieve a critically informed position on an issue of contemporary importance that will serve as a foundation for civic engagement and informed participation in democratic processes. Therefore, the Signature Assignment involves applying critical thinking in what is know as ‘civic learning’.
WHAT IS CIVC LEARNING?
Civic learning is borrowing from the language of A Crucible Moment. It was publish ed by the Association of American Colleges and Universities. As learning that promotes a “more informed, engaged, and also socially responsible citizenry.”
Further, in this exercise students will develop knowledge and exercise skills that will contribute to the growth of civic learning. It is hoped that students will carry on with this kind of learning, in all its aspects, in their future personal and professional lives.
There are very good videos from the Critical Thinker Academy, by Kevin deLaplante. Additionlly, on the importance and also relevance of the study of critical thinking and reasoning for civic learning.
Further, democracy and citizenship at the Critical Thinker Podcast on YouTube. DeLaplante argues in the second video that education in critical thinking is needed for citizens in a liberal democracy to promote constructive, rational dialogue and also argument about issues of public policy. Moreover, students should ask themselves: Is deLaplante right about this? And, if so, is the lack of education and practice in critical thinking a reason national debate of policy issues has become so contentious and polarised?
