Fact or Fiction: Critical Thinking & Collaboration (7/4/22 10:30 AM EST)

Critical Thinking is using reason to examine all the information before making an informed decision or opinion. We will examine media and information sources and look at how different people and websites present the same information in different ways. How do you know if you're getting the whole story? We'll also practice listening to and understanding people who we don't agree with. We'll look for common ground and ways to communicate and collaborate.

This course will run from 7/4/22-8/7/22
Seminars will meet on Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30-11:30 AM EST

Instructor: Sara Brown, SBrown@pslstrive.org
