- Homework exercises adapted from a wide range of actual arguments from newspapers, philosophical texts, literature, movies, YouTube videos, and other sources.
- Practical advice to help students succeed when applying the Rulebook's rules.
- Suggestions for further practice that outline activities students can do by themselves or with classmates to improve their critical thinking skills.
- Detailed instructions for in-class activities and take-home assignments designed to engage students in critical thinking.
- An appendix on mapping arguments, a topic not included in the Rulebook, that introduces students to this vital skill in evaluating or constructing complex and multi-step arguments.
- Model responses to odd-numbered exercises, including commentaries on the strengths and weaknesses of selected model responses as well as further discussion of some of the substantive intellectual, philosophical, and ethical issues raised by the exercises.
