Thinking Critically At NC A&T SU

A guide to resources that support the five learning outcomes of NC A&T's QEP.



Develop information into knowledge for presentation

Ø Develop and defend a position on an issue

Ø Draw conclusions when warranted, but with caution.

  • What I have learned? What is my thesis or answer to the question?

  • How do I organize my notes to support my argument or thesis?

  • Am I analyzing and using the information effectively?

  • Am I making conclusions based on research evidence?  Does my outline logically organize the evidence and conclusions?

  • What assumptions and implications am I making?

  • How should I present the information to best share what I have learned with others?

  • Do I need to integrate technology to enrich, publish, or present my project?
