Review the example I gave you in the Week 1 Announcement Section titled, Example of a direct quote and
a paraphrase and a References header (for Critical Thinking Assignments, Only). This will ensure that you
are using the correct APA format.
Please separate your answers into separate paragraphs, relative to each below question.
1. Summarize what you read in Chapter Ten of Emotional Intelligence: Why Can it Matter More Than IQ.
2. Is there any information in Chapter Ten that you did not know or didn’t take the time to think about
before? If this information is not new to you, how does what you read help to build upon what you already
3. What did you read that gave you the strongest reaction (surprise, worry, enlightenment, sadness,
happiness, etc.)? Please elaborate on your answer.
These critical thinking assignments are expected to be significant. You must refer to the reading for the
chapter, and you must use the Goleman book to support your thoughts and feelings. You will do this by
using proper in-text citation. If you do not cite, you will get 0 points for your initial post and a warning,
because your assignment will be considered plagiarized.
The purpose of the critical thinking exercise assignments is to replicate the type of discussion that would
occur in a traditional classroom setting. For each assignment, your instructor will provide a critical thinking
topic for you to address with your classmates.
This parameter helps to promote writing that is thorough, yet concise enough to permit other students to
read all the postings. The thoughts and opinions expressed in your thread need to be substantiated by
research and literature (from the textbook). All in-text citations and references should be in the correct APA
style. While this is a formal discussion environment, you are allowed to use the first-person perspective in
all your posts since you will be expressing your personal opinions. All original threads should: Bring clarity
to the issues being discussed. Raise new and novel (yet relevant) points. Relate issues to personal
experience. Rationally defend your stated position.
