Create a lesson plan describing and explaining the following questions:
(1) Which objectives does this chapter fulfill?
(2) In what measurable ways can I assess how the students are not only learning, but also applying this objective?
(3) What does student success look like with regard to this objective?
(4) What dialectic should I integrate to enhance the objective?
(5) Which executive function skills should I expect of the students in approaching this objective?
(6) In what measurable ways can I assess the mastery of my integration, and the students’ approach to this objective?

I. Introduction to Syllogisms and Validity
Create some examples to help your students understand the difference between constructing validity and stating truths.

II. Arranging the Syllogism
Using the categorical headings for creating syllogism, create a checklist worksheet for students to help them organize the various items to consider when constructing and evaluating syllogisms.

III. Enthymemes
Create a worksheet to help your students learn to ask the right questions when approaching an argument or position.

IV. Moods and Figures
Have the class cooperatively create a memorable mnemonic device, based on the one created by logicians of the Middle Ages. (Prepare one ahead of time to help guide the students to a successful end.)
