Critical Thinking Reflection

Five weeks ago I was completely unaware of what critical thinking was. This course, HUM/115 Critical Thinking in Everyday Life, I now has so many helpful tips to improve my critical thinking in everyday life. Once you are aware of what critical thinking is you realize you use it every day, whether you\'re at work, at school, at home with your family, or having a conversation with your friends There are three thing, I had learned for the past five weeks ago, they are becoming a critical thinker, the five-steps model, and not at least, determining the reliability and credibility of a message and the source. .
The first lesson, I had learned was to know how to become a critical thinker. Critical thinker is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from. Critical thinking occurs when a person thinks about a subject or problem to where the improvement of the quality of one\'s own thinking using skillful analogies, then assessing and reconstructing them. It don\'t take day, months to become a critical thinker, it actually take year or more to become a better one. The lesson for me that we use critical thinking every day , like when we try to find the information what we want to know. We have to analyzing the information to see if it was true.
The second lesson, I had learned was the five-step model. The Five-Steps Model The five-step model is five steps that help one solve a problem. The five steps include identifying a problem, the causes and effects of the problem, creating solutions to solving the problem, critically think of the best option from step four to solve the problem and act, monitor and if needed modify the problem. I use the five-step models every day at home, work, with the friends. I always want to find the accurate information what I want to know. Sometime, I stay away with the social media, they never tell the true or avoid the information what I need to know.
The last lesson, I had learned was to determining the reliability and credibility of a message and the source. Determining the reliability and credibility of a messenger and the message is what I found to be a difficult task. The messenger is the sources that deliver you information. In my critical thinking process, we must determine how credible our source of information is. Determining the credibility if the messenger is important because your messenger can be your barrier in the critical thinking process (Ridel, 2015). The message is the information that is received. Determining if the message is true and factual is a major step in coming to a conclusion on an opinion, thought or solving a problem (Ridel, 2015). We could be potentially making a decision based on a lie or false information. I will use this step in the critical thinking process by not relying on what I thought I have known to be true and start looking into the background of my sources and see how relevant their expertise is to the subject matter at hand as well as, looking into different sources to see how factual the information is. This course and course material have offered me a lot of insight in critical thinking, solving problems, and determining reliable and credible sources and information. I will use each learned material in my future course and everyday life.
