Critical and Creative Thinking / Levels 5 and 6 / Reasoning
Content description
Investigate common reasoning errors including contradiction and inconsistency, and the influence of context
  1. using an example such as the statement: "I love chocolate and I hate chocolate" to discuss whether different contexts can explain apparent inconsistencies
  2. identifying an apparent contradiction in a point of view and discussing whether clarifying what is meant would resolve it; for example, clarifying that apparently having time to pay attention to the teacher but not to read the textbook is not a contradiction about wanting to learn but rather an indication of difficulty in understanding the textbook
