Young teens are targeted by advertisers with a vengeance. From billboards to commercials to a walk down the mall, fallacious arguments are everywhere you look. This course was designed to teach the argumentative adolescent how to reason with clarity, relevance, and purpose at a time when he has a penchant for the “why” and “how”.
The Art of Argument (Teacher’s Edition) features the entire content of the student text, along with answer keys, teaching tips, and invaluable chapter and unit tests.
Students master 28 fallacies (such as begging the question, the straw man, ad hominen, et al.) by studying many pertinent examples.
