    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The basis of this class was to learn how to evaluate written arguments, detect fallacies, and present more persuasive and accurate arguments in your own writing. Professor Hammar drove us to be analytical and thorough, and enjoyed stimulating class discussion and interaction. I loved the course and I enjoyed working with the Professor.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight, for me, was when we were assigned to analyze a published essay or article, searching for fallacies, inaccurate portrayal of statistics, or illogical assumptions. We were able to put in practice what we had studied so far, and it was rewarding to see how much better I understood the author's argument and could dispute it with my own opinion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be thorough! Professor Hammar loves thoroughness. We were given a reading assignment for almost every class, and were expected to bring a hard copy of it, annotated and highlighted, for him or his TA to grade. The more you mark up that paper with ANYTHING you found interesting or thought provoking, the better it will be received. He used to quote something about "a book isn't actually yours until you have written all over it," and he expected you to apply that to every piece of assigned reading you brought in. It isn't hard. Just be thoughtful.
