Recognizing persuasion

With this T4T tutorial, students assess the soundness of reasons offered to influence their thinking and actions. They develop an understanding of the value of deciding whether frequently offered reasons are actually valid, and the importance of judging the validity of reasons offered in everyday discussion. This tutorial includes instructional suggestions for teachers (introducing the strategy, practicing the strategy, reinforcing the strategy, applying the strategy to everyday teaching, and assessing use of the strategy) and resources for students (introductory activities, data charts, student guide and self-assessment rubric).
