This 90-minute workshop, delivered in partnership with expert facilitators from ThinkerAnalytix, will give NHSEB coaches simple, practical tools for teaching logic and reasoning skills, especially the skills teams need to construct and evaluate moral arguments with precision and care. Facilitators will introduce you to argument mapping–a powerful, research-backed method that teams can use to better understand the structure of arguments found in Ethics Bowl cases, and begin to build their own arguments for competition. Using argument maps, students can have thoughtful and constructive disagreements about important moral issues, both within their teams and with teams from around the country.

 

ThinkerAnalytix is an educational non-profit partnered with the Department of Philosophy at Harvard University. ThinkerAnalytix believes that arguments about important social, political, and ethical issues can be good. Their mission is to teach the logic and reasoning skills students need to engage in these important arguments with both empathy and evidence.
