Critical thinking paper #1

Critical thinking paper overview

I'll claim that the following paragraph sums up this entire course. Now how does that relate to taking text from a writer and making decisions about how to arrange it? Does it involve more than just "prettying up" the text? How does it relate to the other readings?

Understanding a situation requires mentally integrating many pieces of information.  It requires understanding both that the information exists and how it is interrelated to the situational context and other pieces of information.  People often know something is occurring or that a particular piece of information exists, but they do not understand how it relates to the overall situation.  What they need from the data is to gain the knowledge required to understand the situation in its current context and make some type of decision about it.
