Pedagogy Workshop: “The Elements of Arguments: Teaching Critical Thinking and Logic” with Phil Turetzky, CSU (retired)

Wednesday, September 13, noon @ Ethics Center (Eddy 6)

In teaching beginning courses in critical thinking and logic, teachers seek to develop a way of presenting the subject matter that addresses the difficulties and common confusions so often found among students.  Unfortunately, many of the textbooks do not address these problems directly nor pedagogically.  The talk will discuss the approach I eventually took to  confront these difficulties and confusions by reorganizing the presentation of the subject matter, and which along the way led to writing the book The Elements of Arguments: An Introduction to Logic and Critical Thinking.
