Critical thinking: an incoherent diatribe from an agnostic
, Week Six General Discussion

The classical training in rhetoric taught the listener to examine the arguments put forward by a speaker distinguishing authority coming from emotion, authority coming from the person of the speaker, and arguments coming from the logic of the propositions put forward. There are further considerations in terms of the audience to whom the speech is directed which we need not go into here.

PLENK2010 A Wonderful Literacy Project
noreply@blogger.com (Skupik), Skupiktalk
#PLENK2010 I want to draw your attention to a wonderful project of the Lieutenant Governor of BC. He is trying to encourage kids and adults to write stories. He has commissioned an artist to paint stories. The writer can pick one or more of the paintings to build a story.
