LTC: Weasel Words: Using QR to Teach Precision in Argumentation

Carleton College Learning and Teaching Center, Carleton College Learning and Teaching Center

Nathan Grawe, Associate Professor of Economics

A recent survey of college graduates reveals that students especially appreciate faculty members who have advocated precision in language. While this precision can take many forms, research at Carleton points to a particular need in the area of quantitative reasoning. In this seminar we will examine how quantitative reasoning can be applied across the curriculum to improve students' ability to think and argue effectively. The discussion will include teaching tips and notes on available support resources.
