Well, apart from the fact we think it’s an enormously interesting subject….there are lots of reasons.
- You will learn skills that you can use in other subjects such as recognising bias and exaggeration, evaluating different types of evidence, comparing and contrasting different viewpoints.
- You will learn communication skills that will help you when you get a job including literacy skills of reading, writing and speaking as well as presentation skills.
- You will learn skills that will help you if you go to college to university such as extended writing, discussion and informed debate, developing reasoned and justified points of view and research/investigating strategies.
