Critical thinking is what some uses as they grow in the thinking process. There are six stages of critical thinking. These stages are the unreflective thinker, the challenged thinker, the beginning thinker, the practicing thinker, the advanced thinker and finally the Master thinker. People go from one to the other as they learn the critical thinking process. During this class I have learned to use the critical thinking process while trying to do my assignments. To use critical thinking while at work and having to learn or do something new. We have just started having to do the laundry at work at night. It took a lot of thinking to fit this new chore into our regular chores at work. I have figured out how to make it work to benefit myself and the others whom I work with. I start my night off by checking my patients, getting together all the dirty linen I can to get it started. They take an hour to wash and a half hour to dry. So this works out great for in-between our rounds every two hours we can wash the clothes get them in the dryer and fold them within the time frame of doing rounds. It is going to be a challenge on the two nights a week we have to wash wheelchairs also because this is very time consuming.

The challenge for critical thinking instruction lies not in convincing people of its value but in developing a model of what to teach and how to teach it. Toulmin's model provides a useful framework for students to examine the ability of an argument to justify rather than prove a point. Utilizing this model can make critical thinking the very means by which students construct knowledge.

Our critique lets the rest of the universe know what we think and who we are, if somebody said to me that I am a bad person I would automatically come up with all my good quality’s…
