First 10 weeks only.
In this course, we will explore some of the topics that
incite the most heated political disputes in our society. We will
discuss controversies both specifically and generally, with an eye
toward understanding, critiquing, and participating in political
discourse of all kinds. Using specific controversies as case
studies, students will learn to determine the key players, learn
what is at stake and how they might be affected, identify and
evaluate strategies used to persuade, and make effective arguments
about issues that matter to them.
