Prepping for Fall Four Week Module

At the beginning of the Fall term, I teach a four week session for semester students before the quarter students arrive in DC and they all begin their 10 week seminars. With the election looming, science under attack, and seemingly general confusion about the distinction between evidence and belief, I'm focusing on critical thinking skills. This was my desk this morning as I started sorting through various books and notes (I'm going to add a bibliography and my syllabi to the Library at some point). I teach this class for 3 hours from 6:30-9:30p each week -- after the students have spent all day working at their internships -- so I've got to develop a number of in-class exercises and include various engaging activities so that we're all geared up and awake! Desk
