Consider one of the following current social issues or one of your choice: Gun violence Racism Economic inequality Sexism Violent crime Immigration For the initial post,

Consider one of the following current social issues – or one of your choice:

  • Gun violence
  • Racism
  • Economic inequality
  • Sexism
  • Violent crime
  • Immigration

For the initial post, address the following:

  • State your position on one of these issues – are you for, against, or neutral? Explain why. Avoid vagueness or ambiguity in your response. Make your position very clear.
  • Examine how you have formed that opinion.
    • How well do you think you know the facts?
    • Do you know and understand statistical information that applies to the issue?
    • Do you think you have formed your opinion using only System-1 thinking, or have you applied System-2?
    • What part have heuristics, cognitive bias, and dominance structuring played in how you have formed your opinions?

The initial post is not about how "correct" your position is; it is about how you arrived at your position on the issue. This discussion requires application of metacognition – thinking about how you think.

  • Examine carefully your thinking in response to your peers:
    • What part, if any, have facts, heuristics, or dominance structuring played in your response?
    • What part, if any, has cognitive bias played in your response?
