This interesting and exciting new exploration into critical thinking introduces readers to the concepts of critical and civic literacy, informing them about the world around them by allowing an understanding of current events and issues. It will give you the tools and strategies necessary to take action, address hot-button topics, work with others in your community, and instigate change. Designed to help readers examine values, assumptions, and ideologies, this book uses multimedia sources to examine events, opinions, multiple perspectives, and successful arguments through such topics as the Columbine High School shootings, the human biogenics debate, Homeland Security and the Patriot Act, global women’s rights, television’s five-second delay controversy, and the Gulf War prisoner abuse scandal. An interesting and thoughtful read for anyone interested in interpreting current events with respect to their own experiences, this book is a must-have for those readers that need to develop their critical thinking, reading, and writing skills.
