Pick one impediment per day for TWO days, write what that impediment is the date, and then, towards the end of the day write out where and how you saw that impediment hampering or blocking critical thinking in the world around you and/or in yourself.
For at least one of the examples you name per day, dig a little more deeply into how you know that impediment was at work: how did the person (or you, yourself) involved display thinking that wasn’t critical or reasonable? Can you take this back to the three parts of critical thinking mentioned in Nosich’s Chapter One? Which of those three parts was missing or less than great? This part should be written in complete sentences.
