· Explain at least five elements of critical thinking that you found in the reading material.

1. Not allowing your emotions to sway your opinion or views prior to completing your research.

2. Analyzing facts verses opinions within your source.

I found an article on the Ashford University Library, Author Gibbons (2017), shares issue of ethics while serving in the United States Navy. The purpose of the article is to discuss how moral obligations may change overtime, but they also stay the same in many ways. I found this article interesting as it demonstrated good critical thinking by challenging the thought process of what moral obligations may have changed from our parent’s era to ours? What ethics have been lost over time and which ones will never waver?

I found an article on the internet discussing work permits being revoked for tech worker spouses in Silicon Valley. They claimed an executive order was passed by President Trump protecting American citizen employment. The article is claiming Silicon Valley has begun the limitation on visas for more than 100,000 spouses of immigrants not allowing them to work due to a “labor shortage”. This article is extremely bias in nature. There is not scholarly research to support the article. There are no references cited throughout the article nor credited at the end. The author seems to have an objective perspective on this topic, which limits critical thinking.
