This course offers a comprehensive introduction to critical thinking. Students gain knowledge of deductive and inductive arguments, evaluate the strength of premises, and analyze arguments. The role of language in critical thinking is emphasized. Other topics include categorical statements and syllogisms, compound statements and syllogisms, fallacies of relevance, and fallacies of insufficient evidence. Students explore the basics of critical thinking in research and discover how to construct and write arguments. The course concludes with practical advice on how to be a critical consumer of media messages, in addition to identifying pseudoscientific claims. This is a fully functional demonstration of one topic from the complete McGraw-Hill course. Full courses tend to be fourteen topics plus a review week, and have alternative content available for customization purposes. Once the course is placed within your Learning Management System, the instructor can turn features off and on via the functionality of the LMS. McGraw-Hill also provides solutions for hosting courses if your institution does not support a Learning Management System. The following are just some of the key facets of our development methodology: Each course begins and ends with input from subject matter experts teaching in the field. They are based on a foundation that includes Bloom's Taxonomy of Education Objectives. We build in engaging interactivity to reach learners with different learning styles and multiple intelligences. Each course is SCORM-compliant and works with all major Learning Management Systems.
