Students in this course learn critical techniques for argumentation by analyzing the arguments of other writers and applying these techniques to their own writing, especially at the revision stage. Both academic and popular sources are analyzed for their use of evidence, the presence of logical errors, and their use of rhetorical devices. Special attention is paid to problems arising from more complex critical analysis, such as appropriate ways to treat conflicting sources, detecting the biases in both primary and secondary source material, and examining the biases of the student's own arguments.
