Part A:

The acts of philosophizing and “thinking again” are best accomplished
through discussion, conversation, and sometimes even debate. This is
how ideas become fleshed out and conversations move forward. As
such, students are expected to produce a robust, original discussion
post each week based on their engagement with course materials. The
primary qualifier for all discussions is that they must have their
foundation in either our philosophical or textbook readings for the week
and connect directly to one or more key excerpts, ideas, passages, or
concepts.

The prompt for each week’s original post discussion revolves around the
following question(s):

Required Readings & Resources

Grant, A. (2021). Think again.

● Prologue

● Chapter 1: “A Preacher, a Prosecutor, a Politician, and a Scientist

Walk into Your Mind”

● Chapter 2: “The Armchair Quarterback and the Impostor: Finding

the Sweet Spot of Confidence”

What would you say is the most significant concept or compelling idea
presented in this week’s course material? Why do you hold that position?

Part B: Articulation: Ancient Philosophy & Individual Rethinking

Assignment

Complicated concepts require careful consideration. Each week students
will produce an Articulation Artifact showing their engagement with, and
mastery of, each week’s readings and resources. In future weeks,
students will have a set of options from which to format their
articulations. Week 1 artifacts will take the form of a 300 – 500 word
essay. Required Readings & Resources

Grant, A. (2021). Think again.

● Prologue

● Chapter 1: “A Preacher, a Prosecutor, a Politician, and a Scientist

Walk into Your Mind”

● Chapter 2: “The Armchair Quarterback and the Impostor: Finding

the Sweet Spot of Confidence”

The goal for such an articulation is to present a reasonable level of
understanding of this week’s core theses, important premises, and key
concepts. 7th edition APA guidelines are required. Times New Roman,
12-point font, double line spacing, a title page, in-text citations, and a
reference page.

Part C: Reflection: Ancient Philosophy, Plato, & Thinking Again

Assignment

The purpose of education and philosophy is not to provide answers
to all of life’s questions, but to help practitioners ask better questions. For
this class specifically, Journal Reflections provide an opportunity to take

our discussions, questions, and ponderings one step further by making
them applicable to our life, work, and relationships.

After reflecting on the readings, resources, and other discussions, write
a reflective journal entry on the following question(s):

● What is on your mind from this week’s material and discussion?
● What captured your attention or made you think?
● What ideas or concepts did you find helpful, compelling, or

valuable?
● What ideas or concepts did you find less helpful?
● What ideas or concepts did you find immediately applicable to your

life, work, or relationships? How will you apply them?

The Reflection must be 300 – 450 words, in paragraph formatting, and
using 7th ed APA guidelines: Times New Roman, 12-point font, double
line spacing, a title page, in-text citations, and a reference page.
