Welcome to How We Argue!
In this course, we introduce argument mapping: a simple, powerful tool that will improve your logical reasoning skills.By learning to map arguments, your students will:
- Use reasoning and evidence to support their claims.
- Read more carefully.
- Discuss controversial issues with precision and care.
This course is built as a “logic boot camp” with hundreds of practice exercises to help you improve your critical thinking “muscles.” When you practice argument mapping, your thinking gets sharper and more clear. We call this “X-Ray vision” because you will learn to see through other people’s arguments to expose their underlying assumptions and poor reasoning.

Here’s a quick argument for why you should take this course:
(Here’s a link to the argument map in the video above)Teachers will graduate this course with tools to help students write logically rigorous essays and discuss current issues.
In addition to lecture videos and practice exercises, we offer many resources to help you incorporate mapping into your classroom: out-of-the-box assessments, lesson plans, slides, puzzle games and more.
Enjoy the course!
