Synthesizing and Writing
Due Week 4 and worth 100 points
 

When looking for information about a particular issue, how often do you try to resist biases toward your own point of view? This assignment asks you to engage in this aspect of critical thinking.

Write at three to four (3-4) page paper in which you address the following:

Restate      your topic from Assignment 1, give your position on the topic, and explain      why you chose that topic. Identify two (2) opposing views on the topic,      and then present the view that you’ll try to defend in the assignment. Be      prepared to support your opinion with academic sources. Identify      three (3) reasons to support your position. In separate paragraphs, go      through each reason and describe why it supports the position you took in      the first section. Go      back to your Believing Game answers from Assignment 1. Describe why you      thought those responses were true. What led you to ‘believe’ things in      that way? Was it an expectation (straw man) or did you truly examine what      they were saying? Identify      at least two (2) biases you experienced in your examination of the topic.      How did the biases support or contradict the position you took? Did the      biases create a barrier to your thinking? Since      we all have biases or opinions, how did your own background shape the way      you felt about the topic you presented in the first section? Now      that you have used the Believing Game, has your thinking about the topic      changed? If so, why? If not, why not?

The paper should follow guidelines for clear and organized writing:

Include      an introductory paragraph and concluding paragraph. Address      main ideas in body paragraphs with a topic sentence and supporting      sentences. Adhere      to standard rules of English grammar, punctuation, mechanics, and      spelling. Follows      APA citation rules. (Note: Since Procon was used as a resource in      Assignment 1, it is fine to cite again here)

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

Be      typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch      margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA Style      format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. Include      a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name,      the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and      the reference page are not included in the required assignment page      length.
