A Visual Design for Evidence-Based Arguments – John Arthur

There are 5 essential pieces you need when designing a winning argument: evidence, reasoning,  your  claim, counterclaims, and personal  finishes that  make the argument your own.  It’s only 5 things, but  it’s difficult for kids to keep  them  all straight  without a picture that shows  them  how those parts are interconnected and work together.  So, I developed a simple way  of helping students visualize  the design of an argument. In this talk, I will share this design and discuss how I use it to paint a clear, memorable picture in the minds of students.
