Want to help students practice intellectual charity when discussing current issues and analyzing texts? In this interactive session, Harvard Philosophy Associate and ThinkerAnalytix Lead Instructor Nate Otey will show you how to use a simple, practical method called argument mapping to help students listen carefully and interpret texts charitably.
Research from top universities shows that argument mapping significantly improves students’ argument analysis skills, and may even decrease partisan polarization. Attendees will leave with a simple, actionable toolkit of practice exercises and other teaching resources that can be implemented right away to make students’ thinking more precise and more charitable.
