The Writing Center to Hold Two Workshops on Critical Thinking/Reading

Writing Center Neon sign

When the light is on, we are open for business!

Do your students seem reluctant to question information they find in print? Do their argumentative works exhibit flaws in logic? Send them to the Writing Center’s workshops on Critical Reading and Thinking for a little extra help!

On April 3 we will present “Critically Reading an Argument” at 4 p.m. in Library 230.

We’ll follow up with “Critical Thinking and Logical Fallacies” on April 17.

Proof of attendance is available upon request.
