Product Description
How many times have you tried to get your students to write an intelligent argument, but realize they don't critically think well enough to do that? Before you ever have them research their first point, show them the types of people who have problems thinking critically. Introduce them to the problem thinkers of the argument world: The Opinionator, The Shunner, The Divider, The Wimp, and The Copycat. All have unique problems and incorrect ideas about what an effective argument is. Once they understand what NOT to do, then they are ready to learn what to do. Their arguments will be so much better, and they will have a thorough understanding of potential audiences.
