How We Argue
   
  In this two-day class we will introduce argument mapping, a powerful tool for engaging the most controversial issues. We will explore and expose the hidden structure of arguments to reveal unstated assumptions and weak support relationships. Much like practicing scales for piano or jump shots for basketball, learning to map arguments will make students more precise, confident thinkers across disciplines. As current university research shows, argument mapping improves students' writing and analytical reasoning abilities. Participants will leave this workshop with classroom activities, lesson plans, assessments, and other resources to improve the rigor and precision of students' writing and to make class discussions more focused and constructive.
