Critical thinking is not a concept that can be understood in one assignment, one class, or from any one individual theoretical framework. I believe that at the time I completed this artifact, I successfully identified the parts that comprised the whole as best I understood it at that time; but, today as I reflect, I see the complexity of the whole and the lines that separate the parts (theory, knowledge, practice, and worldview) are blurred and difficult to articulate.
I am groping for words to express myself as I reflect upon this artifact. It is like staring at a ball of string knowing that in describing it, I will unravel it, and it will no longer be a ball; it will just be a pile of string and I will have ruined it...So in a very superficial manner, I am simply going to pick “fuzz” off this ball of string hoping that what I offer fulfills the course requirements.
