How to Teach a Child to Argue

I stumbled upon a great article that I'm considering sharing with my students. It's called How to Teach a Child to Argue. It was nominated for a 2007 National Magazine Award. I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Alyssa for posting this. I was introduced to Jay Heinrichs when a professor at the U of U told me about his book and interview on NPR. His webiste is a fun way to get students interested in rhetoric and argument. I've used his book also in my classes. I met him at Cs one year when he was signing his book. It definitely is written for a popular and not an academic audience, but that makes it easier for many people to relate to.
