Critical Thinking


Critical thinking is a study of logical argument, how to recognise if an argument 'holds water', and how to make a good argument.   We look at passages about general topics such as global warming, or a report on an accident and unpick which of the points made stands up and which do not.

We make use of a textbook, write our responses to arguments for homework, and spend a lot of time talking over the points.

We also learn some handy terms for describing how arguments work and common fallacies
