Tuition: Fallacy Detective - 10 weeks - Spring 2021
$ 250.00
14 available

While it’s said that pre-teens will almost always find a way to place themselves in the middle of an argument, they won’t argue well without good training. Today’s children are often the unwilling targets of bad reasoning and poorly formed arguments, from a variety of sources. Fallacies are everywhere you look. This course is designed to teach them how to reason with clarity, relevance and purpose at a time when they are focused on the why and how. It is designed to equip and sharpen young minds as they live, play, and grow in this highly commercial culture. This course teaches Learners to recognize and identify bad reasoning, and does so in an easy to follow format for middle-school age learners.

Lessons don’t follow a consistent format, which keeps things interesting. There will be review questions and “dialectic exercises” on a regular basis throughout the term. We will use visual media where appropriate to illustrate and provide learners with examples. Learners will also be expected to present to their peers on a relevant topic, using slides or relevant visual media, while participating in this course.          

This class seeks to foster greater familiarity with various logical fallacies that will help the learner identify their use in common, everyday situations.

NOTE:

Registration deadline is March 15, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
