Lesson 6 Learning Objectives: 

  • Get comfortable with argument mapping software.
  • Synthesize knowledge and skills from previous lessons to map more complex arguments. 
  • Charitably interpret and accurately visualize the structure of real-world arguments.

Now that you’re familiar with all of the components of arguments, and the different structures that arguments can have, it’s time to start combining these basic building blocks into more complex (and more interesting!) arguments.

We’ll begin by introducing you to the MindMup software tool, which lets you create, edit and share argument maps.
