This post begins a series in which my son Ben, a high-school student, reports on his efforts to train himself to become a better critical thinker.
Ben explores the roles played by logic (logos), emotion (pathos), and connection (ethos) in how we think.
Ben continues to learn how to become a critical thinker by grappling with logic.
Ben ties it all together with a discussion about his favorite topic: argumentation.
Ben uses Toulmin maps to better understand who is the greatest in sports, as well as how to best fight against racism.
