CRITICAL T PHL 1010-1 : PHL 1010-12I-6, Critical Thinking - CSU

Course Overview: I would recommend this course. For most schools I believe it is one of the first courses that you must take on the way to earning your degree. This was my first course and I was very nervous since I have not ever taken a class on line in the college setting and has been years since I have been in a structured course. I looked into the class days before it started and classmates from school were posting that this was the hardest class they ever had, students stated that they dropped the class and would try it at a later date. I was then very nervous but still wanted to find out myself.

Visual Art as Critical Thinking

We've heard this story before. The first thing to go in budget cuts is the visual art program or another related art. Proponents of arts education counter with the usual rhetoric on the importance of self-expression and creativity. I, myself, am a product of arts education. From the early age of kindergarten I was in musical theater. I eventually transitioned in music as a focus, and was a choir nerd in middle school and into college. In fact, my participation in Jazz Choir kept me in school, as I struggled with depression as a young adult.
