Due to COVID-19, this course was entirely remote. My strategy involved more elaborate worksheets for students to complete before coming to section. Because the emergency conditions did not allow equitable access to high-speed internet and available time/space to participate live, I made sections optional times for students to ask for guidance on the worksheets. This ended up being more work for worse results.
In the first week, I had students fill out a basic questionaire.
These slides explain why we bother with counterarguments to get students to understand what they are.
This worksheet guides students through organizing a paper that describes an argument. I use an argument from Garrett Hardin’s “Lifeboat Ethics”.
This worksheet uses Hardin’s piece to understand how arguments generally work.
This worksheet explains how to develop one’s own counterargument.
