Teacher Talk: Helping Students Reason from Evidence

February 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CST

Free

Offered in partnership with Mass Insight Education and Research

One of the best things we can do for all students is to take their thinking seriously. In this interactive session, we explore ways to cultivate students’ critical reasoning abilities through the study of written arguments. We examine strategies for helping students collect and organize information, analyze and evaluate evidence, unpack assumptions, and draw conclusions using examples from literary and informational texts.

Facilitator: Jennifer Fletcher

Jennifer Fletcher is a professor of English at California State University, Monterey Bay and a former high school teacher. She is the author of Teaching Arguments, Teaching Literature Rhetorically, and Writing Rhetorically. Jennifer blogs at rhetoricalthinking.com and tweets @JenJFletcher.
