Comment/Description

This course is designed to help students comprehend, analyse and create written argumentative discourse in English. It introduces them to the basic principles and models of argumentation, and allows them to practise and improve their critical thinking and writing skills. In this class, students will learn how to develop and formulate central claims (thesis statements) and support them with logical, focused, and progressive argumentation. We will look at how to find evidence and other forms of proof, and to organize ideas in written discourse. Students will explore how best to adapt their arguments to a particular communicative situation, paying attention to the intended audience and the immediate problem to be solved by the text. The course will examine a range of argumentative genres in English (newspaper editorial, advertising, academic paper), although our main focus will be the deliberative essay.
