Decision Making, Critical Thinking & Debate Prep for Pre-Teens (Ongoing Class)

This ongoing class focuses on “how to think” and make good decisions. This becomes learning to write good arguments and becomes the beginning of debate preparation. Identifying faulty thinking is an essential life skill.

Description

Class Experience

1. Learn critical thinking steps before forming an opinion.    
2. Spotting logic fallacies – and framing their thoughts with sound logic.    
3. How these principles play out when reading, hearing lectures and speaking.    
I’ve taught in the nonprofit sector for 20 years, public/private education for 6+ years, and homeschooled 2 boys for 8 years. 
There will be an average of 1 hour of homework for class. This will include weekly assignments that follow the class lesson that will integrate with the Student Entrepreneur Project Presentation.
Available if requested based on class participation, preparation for discussions, and the Student Presentation.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.

About Me

I've been teaching here on Outschool for a year (May 2020) now. It has been my pleasure to teach more than 1100 students here this last year. I find that a dialog with parents is very helpful for encouraging success for students.
