Critical and Creative Thinking / Levels 5 and 6 / Reasoning
Content description
Consider when analogies might be used in expressing a point of view and how they should be expressed and evaluated
  1. considering a range of sample analogies and discussing possible sources for analogies, for example, personal experience
  2. examining the form of an argument by analogy and constructing examples, for example ‘just as a machine goes rusty and stiffens if the parts don’t move, people’s bodies also need to move’ as part of a promotion strategy for exercise
  3. discussing the strength of an analogy by examining whether there is good reason to think that a particular characteristic is shared, for example that people’s bodies share an adequate degree of similarity with machines in an analogy about the need to keep machines maintained and exercise
