Module 1 Overview
This first module, Overview of Skills Used in Argumentation, will go over the skills needed to form logical arguments. Let’s be honest, making arguments is hard. Think about the last time you were in an argument. Maybe you were trying to debate with a friend. Maybe it was a heated discussion at a family gathering. Perhaps you were just trying to figure out where to eat for dinner. You were probably passionate about the point you wanted to make. But did you get frustrated? Most likely, it’s because it’s challenging to articulate an idea and support that argument with evidence in a concise manner.
Making a reasoned inference, crafting an argument, and supporting it with evidence are skills needed to make a historical argument. In the next lessons, let’s review these skills and then practice them for classroom usage.
