One page Each (Build up Lesson 1 &2 in my orders)
Lesson 3
This week’s lesson will encourage you to look much deeper at who you are as ad individuals and us as a society. Further thinking about egocentrism and the elements of reasoning we deploy, this activity will help you explore some of your egocentric assumptions and some common situations in life that we take for granted.
You are conducting a tour for aliens who are visiting earth and observing humans. You’re all in their spaceship when you happen to fly over a football stadium. One of the aliens is confused, and turns to you for help. Thinking critically, answer these questions as posed by your alien friend:
What is a game, and why do humans play them?
What are “teams” and why are they so important for humans to be part of?
Why is it these games seem to get more attention than other matters on your planet, like disease and poverty?
Why do humans get so emotional and even violent when watching games?
What would happen if no human could ever play these games again?
Next, find a friend or family member to pose this same scenario and questions to. Think critically about you both answered the same set of questions. How do your responses compare? How are they different? Do you think egocentrism present? What other impediments do you think may have contributed to the way that you (and your friend) may have answered these questions?
Final Project – Remember you are building your final paper/project over the course of these 5 weeks! This week, you will continue to add to the draft of your paper. By now, you are familiar with your article and the problem the author has identified. Add to your paper by answering the following: (1) What main concepts does the author use to relate to the main issue; (2) What’s the point of view of the author? and (3) What are the author’s assumptions. Remember to refrain from critiquing the article and instead, demonstrate your critical thinking skills!
Lesson 4
As critical thinkers, we need to focus on the argument, not the expression thereof!
Prepare a 1-2 page argumentative essay on a relevant topic in your field. Your argumentative essay must contain all of the relevant elements of an argument, including valid reasoning, supporting claims (the premise) and a conclusion!
Then, think critically about this:
Some people would argue that buying lottery tickets makes no sense at all. In fact, people in math often call lotteries “the stupidity tax.” Mathematically, why do you think that is? Develop a brief argument that supports your response to this statement. Provide your answers in 1-2 paragraphs.
Final Project – Remember you are building your final paper/project over the course of these 5 weeks! This week, you will continue to add to the draft of your paper. By now, you are familiar with your article and have established the author’s logic by answering the previous questions. Add to your paper by answering this series of questions: (1) Discuss the significance of the issue that is the focus of the article. Why is it important? On what do you base your assertions regarding its significance?; (2) What potential problems do you see in the author’s reasoning? What potential problems are there with the author’s use of information? Does the information used appear relevant, significant, valid, and sufficient for the conclusions being drawn? Do you have enough information to determine whether the information is relevant, significant, valid? Remember to refrain from critiquing the article and instead, demonstrate your critical thinking skills!

Lesson 5
Using your new skills and Final Project
Now that you have become a Critical Thinker, let’s have some fun.

Based on what you’ve learned, can you solve the prisoner hat riddle?
After viewing the video, think critically about the following questions: why is it important that you have time to discuss the strategy together before the test begins? And, how can you be sure that everyone will correctly cooperate? Can you think of other scenarios where someone would gain more by not cooperating with the group strategy? What impediments to critical thinking do you think contributed to the outcome?
Final Project – Over these last 5 weeks you have been building your final project. This week, not only will you continue to add to it, but you will also submit your completed paper. By now, you are familiar with your article and have thought critically about the author’s purpose and reasoning. Complete your paper to your paper by answering one final question: What point of view is ignored by the author, or has not been considered in dealing with the issue? Then, prepare an introduction and a conclusion that captures your overall thoughts to also be added to your paper. As a final reminder, refrain from critiquing the article and instead, demonstrate your critical thinking skills!
