TY - GEN N1 - Revised for Teaching Philosophy. Posted with permission. ID - cogprints3008 UR - http://cogprints.org/3008/ A1 - Twardy, Dr. Charles R. TI - Argument Maps Improve Critical Thinking Y1 - 2003/// N2 - Computer-based argument mapping greatly enhances student critical thinking, more than tripling absolute gains made by other methods. I describe the method and my experience as an outsider. Argument mapping often showed precisely how students were erring (for example: confusing helping premises for separate reasons), making it much easier for them to fix their errors.
