I have an awesome idea. I give my students argument extraction exercises so they can master presenting arguments in numbered-premise form. It’s tough because I like to rotate them out so that students who have had me for four years don’t see the same set of exercises.
How about we pool our resources and create a massive database of argument extraction exercises? If every philosopher who had their students do argument extraction exercises contributed 3 passages (2-10 sentences long) that each contain an argument along with the extracted argument for each passage, we would all have plenty of different arguments for students to practice extracting.
If 20+ philosophers post in the comments that they would contribute 3 – I’ll get the ball rolling and set up a submission form.
Please spread the word. I know we can get 20+ philosophers who (a) give argument extraction exercises and (b) would contribute 3 of them in order to get a huge database of them.
