    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is an interesting alternative to completing English 1C. Professor Harrison was easy to communicate with and responded quickly to email (within 24 hrs). As long as you participate and are engaged in the course, you will do well.

    Course highlights:

    How critical thinking enhances your life and the way we make decisions. Understanding how critical thinking happens and they ways it can be applied was interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to participate. Group discussions are a major part of the class and enhance the learning of some of the more challenging concepts presented.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a course in informal logic, the study of arguments. Students come away from the course with an understanding of how language, the logical argument forms, and in/formal fallacies are involved in making, analyzing and repairing arguments. Grading is distributed between quizzes, exams, writing assignments and attendance.

    Course highlights:

    Logic is the most important part of persuasion and the purpose of logical arguments is to discover the truth. I learned how to discriminate between good and bad arguments and know why they are good or bad. I am not mislead by phony arguments anymore and I can support the conclusions of my own arguments so they cannot easily be refuted.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The lectures are the most important part to learning so you must go to class. Make sure to take time on the writing assignments and apply what you learned in class. Practicing your analytical skills on the take-home quizzes and the textbook problems will be the only way to know that you have mastered the material for the exams.
