Students will prepare and participate effectively in a range of collaborative conversations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own ideas clearly and persuasively. Critical thinking skills will be developed through various forms of academic conversations to give students classroom confidence through structured debate, Socratic dialogues, and philosophical chairs. Students will learn how to evaluate a speakers’ point of view, reasoning, evidence, and rhetoric through ethos-pathos-logos, recognizing argument fallacies, bias, and expanding denotative and connotative meaning in vocabulary for the purpose of deeper comprehension. This course will focus on meaning negotiation, idea building, problem-solving, challenging ideas, and focused thinking stamina. The skills developed in this class will prepare the student for high school and college classroom demands.

This course is instructed by Natalie Feinberg and is scheduled from July 9 to July 13. To learn more about our instructors click here
