The purpose of this course is to develop higher-order thinking abilities needed for academic success and personal development. Each element in this course is designed to help students become critical thinkers. Students will be challenged to think, reason, read and write clearly, logically and effectively in order to better understand our world and everyday situations. Critical thinking is often the first step in problem solving. It is essential for understanding ourselves and our relationships. The course will explore critical thinking as it helps to enhance our communication. The development of critical thinking will be fostered by applying these skills to contemporary issues and personal experiences. Students will begin to learn to recognize persuasion and bias, steps to problem-solving, analyze structure of arguments and evaluate the merits of arguments.
