"This course enables students to develop an understanding of the critical thinking process, with a view to improving their own reasoning skills. Students will be introduced to key concepts used in critical thinking, shown how to examine the evidence for a claim, and trained to analyze different types of evidence, including personal experience, appeal to authority, and statistical arguments. In the first part of the course, students will be introduced to the principles of knowledge, reasoning, and evidence and asked to respond in writing to the issues raised in the readings. In the second part, students learn how to work effectively in groups. They select a topic relevant to the course theme and evaluate their own work and the work of their peers. In so doing, they will capitalize on the skills learned in SSK1212, such as choosing and narrowing a topic, locating books and periodical articles pertinent to their research, and integrating sources properly using APA style."
