Classically-educated teens are trained to argue logically…but do they also know how to use the gift of logic wisely and appropriately? If not, then we are raising mechanistic citizens who only want to win arguments and slay dragons. Brian Daigle, author of Street-fighting Logic, shares practical advice from his book that shows educators, parents and kids how to maturely apply the tools of logic. Often not included in logic curriculum, these methods are a gamechanger for rounding out the logic and rhetoric stages. Children are going to argue, so teach them how to argue well!
