Student i2a Video Project: "Trip to the Moon"

Full Length Video (7 Minutes)

Students Max Moore and Everett Rush created this original film in response to their Philosophy 211 critical thinking assignment for instructor Brian Barnes. Here's what they had to say about their experience:

This assignment was an excellent way to make me look at the course content in a new way. It was an interesting assignment that opened a different view and approach to my critical thinking.

—Max Moore

Previously my approach to critical thinking was rather dichromatic. My questions seemed to give bland answers: true or false. The assignment challenged me to find different questions, and using the critical thinking framework reinforced the benefits of continuing to use the framework.

—Everett Rush
