TU104 : Critical Thinking, Reading, and Writing 3 (3-0-6)
Development of critical thinking through questioning, analytical, synthetic and evaluation skills. Students learn how to read without necessarily accepting all the information presented in the text, but rather consider the content in depth, taking into account the objectives, perspectives, assumptions, bias and supporting evidence, as well as logic or strategies leading to the author’s conclusion. The purpose is to apply these methods to students’ own persuasive writing based on information researched from various sources, using effective presentation techniques.
