This class was tough.
This course has been one of the more difficult at Ashford. However, it is that difficulty that makes you become a better student and an overall better human being.
Pay attention to the instructors guidance and you will do fine. Inductive and deductive reasoning is key to making it through the course. Just remember that deductive arguments are valid/invalid and sound/unsound. Inductive reasoning are strong/weak. Not only will this be a key to success in informal logic but it will guide you through all your papers. Also, make sure not to get confused with an argument in the literal sense and arguments in a logical sense, there is a difference. Good luck

Advice for students:
Make sure you read the text. Do not skim it. You are going to have to sit down and put your critical thinking hat on. Give yourself enough time to respond to your peers and make sure you respond to them. It is important to keep in mind that most of you have probably already done ENG122 and this course can make it confusing. As long as you remember to think about the argument logically not literal.
