Course Description

Welcome to your Critical Thinking class! You will learn tactics of psychological warfare, logical fallacies, how to recognize propaganda, and how to use these techniques against your enemies. This course is taught through 12 lessons, recommended to complete on a schedule of one lesson per week. Each lesson contains a video and a printable lesson plan describing the material and citing the sources used.

This course also includes supplemental material to view online or print, and optional class discussion. Recommended reading material and assignments can extend this course to years of independent study, if you should choose to explore these topics in depth beyond the course. Regardless of what you already knew, or how far you decide to research beyond this class, the course material will provide you with a lifetime of sharpened awareness.

Class Schedule

You set your own schedule, but it is recommended that you complete all material in each lesson within a week’s time. If you are participating as an Enrolled student, you are expected to do your best to commit to this schedule.

Each session has a start and end date that will be posted on the webpage for your class. Example: Session 1 begins on Labor Day, September 7, 2020 and runs to December. Enrolled students should start Lesson One the week of Monday, September 7 and finish all Lesson One material (at your own pace, day, and time) by Sunday, September 13. The second week, beginning on Monday, September 14, you’d be expected to complete all Lesson Two material by Sunday, September 20, and so on, until the end of the 12-week course in December. It is recommended that you set reminders in an app or on a written calendar so that you don’t forget to work on your class.

Note: Future sessions of this course will start on a different day. If you have found this course after a session is already in progress, you may attend as a Casual student, or wait until the next session to enroll.
