You will learn the questions to ask to develop a research question and a tenable thesis statement. You will be given sources to support your learning to summarize, quote, cite and reference properly.  You will read different types of critical essays that offer various types of claims and well-supported arguments, all to support your understanding of how you may shape your essay.  You will increase your vocabulary, understanding of logical, ethical and emotional fallacies to avoid and your confidence in your capacity to essay various types of critical tasks.
