THE ART OF PERSUASION
The Art of Persuasion (Gr. 4-6, 7-9)
Young minds need skills that help them effectively reason and communicate. These analytical abilities are perhaps more necessary now than ever. Many of the communication skills adults take for granted need to be taught to today’s children. In the Art of Persuasion your child will be given tools that will help her/him be a better listener, thinker, and communicator. We will explore certain logical fallacies that children and adults make, and we will learn why they should be avoided. We will be introduced to strategies designed to strengthen our arguments and that help us persuade others into seeing our perspective. Throughout all of our lessons, your child will participate in interactive games designed to help her/him laugh and learn.
