If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider enrolling in the Center for Academic Excellence course, Critical Thinking for Social Change.
Critical Thinking for Social Change can help you improve critical thinking skills in support of objective, scientific writing on a social issue. Topics covered in the 6-week course include
First, you are introduced to the critical thinking process as a framework for investigating a social change issue of your choosing. You write regularly in a social change journal, where you reflect on what you are reading in the literature and what the solution to the issue may be.
The final product is an annotated bibliography of four scholarly sources that address your topic. This annotated bibliography acts as a jumping-off point for further research and engagement with social change ideas. Throughout the course, you receive feedback on writing, critical thinking, and APA style that you can apply to future projects.
