PHIL 103- Critical Thinking--Sample Syllabus 

Offered with civic engagement enhancement: Fall 2014; Spring 2015; Fall 2015; Spring 2016

Students applied the techniques of critical thinking to a “real life” example of their choice by identifying a controversial topic within the local or wider community and wrote an analytical paper in which the opposing positions were described and scrutinized.  The papers were free of bias and thoughtfully examined all aspects of the chosen issue, concluding by deciding which position is most reasonable, or, if applicable, proposing a fair compromise.  The paper is to be six-to seven pages in length and will account for 25% of the students' grade.
