Welcome to Critical Thinking!
Unit 5 Examine the Evidence
We hear many claims in our everyday life.
You can lose weight on a banana diet!
You don’t have to study English. You can learn it by playing English stories when you sleep!
Eat less and you’ll live longer!
When I was a child, an adult told me in seriousness, “If you cross your legs and eat peanut butter, you will get cancer.” What?! How can that happen?
You can’t believe every claim.
You can’t believe everything just because it appears on TV or the Internet. You need to assess it. To assess a claim, you need to examine the evidence.
What does that mean?
You’ll find that out in this Unit!
