Part of a curriculum series for academically gifted elementary students in the area of reading, the four lesson plan guides each fucus on one of the following major objectives: (1) identifying the relationship between the major and minor premise and stating whether the conclusion is a fallacy in reasoning; (2) recognizing the pursuasive use of words, vague and imprecise words, multiple meanings conveyed by a single word, and propaganda techniques; (3) evaluating material by verifying information, finding contradictions, and making comparisons of sources to support a point of view; and (4) generalizing as to the author's purpose and form of writing and thinking, such as fact, fiction, or opinion, inductive and deductive reasoning, and supportive statements. The major portion of each guide consists of a chart showing specific objective; the lesson, procedures, and activities; evaluation suggestions; program materials; related materials; and optional, additional, or more elaborate skills and literary information. Supplementary information includes worksheets and reference materials. (DB)
