This narrated Power Point Presentation is a teaser summary of some of the ideas that will be discussed in the first session of "Who Arranges the Furniture of Your Mind?" a Continuing Studies course offered at the Kelowna campus of Okanagan College. Over six sessions, participants will learn how to become critical consumers and independent thinkers by practising intellectual self-defence. They will explore history, current events, and politics in new and exciting ways by questioning commonly-held assumptions, identifying common ground between issues, analyzing bias in media, recognizing underlying themes and perspectives in media messages, and evaluating opinions (see page 39 of http://t.co/KYs36rZT for the course description). See members.shaw.ca/claymcleod/WhoArrangesTheFurnitureofYourMind.pdf for more information.
