We have started this class already but it is not too late to join! Sometimes, we sense that an argument is not quite right but without knowing why, we are inclined to accept the assertion as fact.

I have taught this class before in a homeschool co-op setting. It was tons of fun! My passion is help learners be able to see where others are making mistakes in their reasoning as well as help the student build their own assertions and points of view void of these mistakes. My background comes from a decade of working as an Analyst of world affairs with the Department of Defense. I learned how to review the evidence (sometimes with the necessity of weeding out deceptions, emotionalized content or propaganda) in order to draw out the facts.
Students will read the assigned chapters in advance of the class and be prepared to discuss.
"The Fallacy Detective" by Nathaniel Bluedorn and Hans Bluedorn, Amazon $19.99 new, Kindle $9.99, used at various prices.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
