YOU ARE NOT SO SMART
As part of our REASONING UNIT (Reasoning as a Way of Knowing), we’ll be exploring several chapters of this book, and then creating short films highlighting the important concepts.

Here are his PODCASTS on SOUNDCLOUD
You can listen to the author in a podcast with Skeptics Magazine HERE

1. Each production group will get a hard copy(ies) of the chapter to read and highlight.
2. Group members will create a threaded conversation in Diigo (CLICK HERE) to discuss important points and brainstorm ideas for the film. Your thinking and planning should be evident.
3. There are numerous TOOLS you could use to create a short film (any style is ok). You might want to check out my Diigo folder on CREATIVITY for some ideas.
