Boost Recruitment, Retention and Rigor: Evidence Based Argumentation in the Classroom

NYCUDL couldn’t agree more with University of Chicago’s George Hillocks who claimed, “Argument is at the very heart of critical thinking…what a student needs to know for success in college.” 
Learn how NYCUDL supports Evidence-Based Argumentation (EBA)  across the curriculum, and how EBA supports YOU.  It’s not just about class debates and thesis projects anymore.  Schools use argument analysis of data sets and texts daily, reporting ratings rises for their Quality Reviews and for the debate club’s popularity.  
Collect task ideas to convey: how persuasion differs from argumentation (use posters), how to infer impact (dueling statistics pair shares), how claims and counterclaims interplay (multi-role play quick clashes), all using easy-to-prep, discipline-specific literacy (which also happen to be relevant as national debate topics).
