Argument Map: Why Support TA?
Often when discussing current issues, students rely on unsubstantiated facts or emotional appeals, rather than evidence and reasoning. How can we teach students to listen respectfully and defend their views with reliable evidence – to cultivate both empathy and logical rigor?
ThinkerAnalytix has worked with Harvard Philosophers and professional educators to develop our signature critical thinking course, How We Argue. We use argument mapping to help students support their claims and to better understand those with whom they disagree. Research from top universities shows that mapping significantly improves students’ critical thinking skills, and may even decrease partisan polarization.
Thank you for helping us bring our “argument boot camp” to teachers and students worldwide.
