- From the Instructor:
- We will strengthen your research, writing, and argumentation skills in this course. I think of research as similar to a treasure hunt, except one clue can lead to six more clues rather than just the next clue. This process involves curiosity and you dont know when you start where you will end up. This means that your ideas can develop through your research and writing about your research. We will work on developing carefully considered positions driven by your curiosity and then persuading readers to agree with you using argumentation techniques. These are techniques you can use anytime you want to investigate a new idea, anytime someone tries to persuade you to do or think something, and anytime you wish to persuade someone else.
