AP/ESL1790 6.0 A: Reasoning In Everyday Language
Cancelled: Course Delivery
Calendar Description / Prerequisite / Co-Requisite
This Modes of Reasoning course is intended for students for whom English is a second language. It addresses the content of Modes of Reasoning while supporting the language proficiency needs of ESL students. Students learn theory and skills that foster critical reading, writing, speaking, and thinking. Students apply theory and skills to the analysis of timely culturally relevant social, ethical, and/or pop culture issues. This course is delivered to enhance the continued learning of the English language for students from an ESL background. Experiential education is built into the course so that skills are actively practiced. Students continually hone their abilities to be both respectfully curious individuals and reasonable skeptics - practices that are helpful in future courses and life generally.
