In class and while doing research of electronic and print media, students will learn to evaluate and interpret data, to recognize assumptions, to distinguish facts from opinions, to identify and avoid logical fallacies, to employ deductive and inductive reasoning, and to effectively assert and support argumentative claims. This course is enriched through extensive, rigorous reading, writing, and research assignments.
