Using your Module 4 written activity as a basis, as well as any other knowledge you have regarding critical thinking models, and construct what you believe to be the “best” critical thinking model that could be used in homeland security. Discuss how that critical thinking model could be used in support of homeland security, using one historical event that might have been prevented or mitigated by using this model. The event should be something that occurred in the past 20 years and may relate to international or domestic security. Also reference any fallacies of logic you found (including poor statistics) that influenced decisions (or non-actions) regarding this event. Your paper should be 8 – 10 pages in length, using APA style. Grading Rubric for the Final Paper Required Textbooks • Browne, M. Neil & Keeley, Stuart M. (2015).

Please see below on notes about paper: Please note that you need to follow the writing requirements provided for all assignments. Since showing your paper’s direction is critical, you want to make sure you have a thesis for your papers. Every paper or exam assignment must have a clear thesis statement, as the last sentence of the introductory paragraph. You cannot state ‘this paper will do xxx” or have a statement of fact as the thesis. The thesis also cannot contain author information. You are welcome to run thesis statements by me prior to the paper due date to ensure you are on the right track. Just as the thesis is important, you want to make sure that each body paragraph in a paper or exam relates back to that thesis so that the paragraphs have focus. Thus, every paragraph must start with a topic sentence in the author’s own words. The topic sentence is like a mini-thesis, relating back to the main thesis, and will be the focus of that paragraph. You won’t want your paragraphs, for instance, to start with author information. Every paragraph in a discussion, paper or exam will be a minimum of three sentences and will have analysis of each idea. The analysis is critical for showing that you both understand and can apply the concepts, concurrently with your own ideas. You want your own ideas to be foremost in each paragraph. First/second person is NOT permitted in any assignment unless the assignment specifically calls for your personal opinion or experiences. Avoid contractions, unfocused words like “it” and “they”, spelling errors, grammatical errors, and punctuation errors. All papers are expected to be spell-checked and are expected to use appropriate English writing techniques. Remember that author information needs to be used appropriately. You would not start or end a paragraph in any assignment with author information or have author information following author information. Your own ideas need to be foremost in each body paragraph. A paragraph, as well as the papers and discussions, must be predominantly your own ideas. Your own ideas must be foremost. The conclusion cannot contain author information. Please note that papers and discussions may be run through turnitin.com to check for originality. Remember to apply the writing requirements. You would not start/end a paragraph with research but your own ideas and analysis. Author information would not stand alone and your own ideas would be foremost. You need to explain and discuss how the research best supports your key points. You also want to avoid stacking research (author information following author information). You want to insert your own ideas and analysis in between the use of research. As per the requirements, the conclusion would not contain research. Author information requires analysis and discussions and thus belongs in the body of the paragraph. The conclusion would not provide new information, requiring analysis, but would summarize key issues and themes from the paper. Try to avoid unfocused wording such as ‘it” so that your subject is clear. Note that the last sentence of the introduction would be your thesis or focus. The thesis is one sentence, not several. You also want to have a clear focus or thesis as the last sentence of the introduction. Rather, you have a statement of fact. A thesis is an argument in statement form and in your own words that you would support and develop throughout the paper. Without a clear focus, the paper will lack direction. You also want to use research appropriately. You would not start/end a paragraph with research but with your own ideas and analysis. You want the research to support your key points, as per the analysis and discussions you would put forth. Remember, as well, to write in third person, not first/second. Who is “we”? You would not know who your reader was or what your reader thought or knew. You also want to avoid personal opinions and experiences (first person).
