â€œCritical Thinking involves analysis, evaluation, and a synthesizing of facts, ideas, opinions and theoriesâ€ (Jones, 2013, para. 1). Critically think (analyze, evaluate, synthesize) the key concepts in your assigned readings in the textbook, articles, etc. Provide examples (clear, specific, and justify your opinions with facts) on how you can apply these theories and concepts within an organization. Use the material from the textbook, discussion boards, videos, and any other resources to assist you in developing your paper.
