C228 Argumentation and Advocacy

This course addresses the construction, analysis and criticism of
arguments as they are deployed in public discourse. Students learn
the fundamentals of propositions, claims, support, analysis and
refutation. Assignments may include readings in argumentation theory
and practice, oral presentations, analytical analysis of public
policy debates, and other projects germane to argumentation. Students
should be prepared to do extensive documentary research and commit to
meeting with both the instructor and with class assigned partners
outside of regular classroom hours.
