Project #14468 - Critical Thinking

  1. Reader's log:

Think of a deductive argument or example of deductive reasoning (either valid or fallacious) that you encountered over the last 1-2 weeks. Share it and analyze it.

  • If you can't think of anything that you personally witnessed, look at the end of Chapter 8 (at the top of page 163) where there are a variety of sample deductive arguments from which you can choose.

Was the example of deduction that you encountered valid or invalid? Write 2-3 paragraphs that reflect upon the argument and your process of evaluation.

Your work will be scored by the following criteria:

Lesson 8 Reader's Log

  1. Mini-Analysis: Deduction in Serious Games

Select one of the following games to play. If you have any disability that would make it impossible to play a game, select the ADA option for each, which links to a descriptive walkthrough for the game:

  • Every Day The Same Dream (a game about the routine of office work) [ADA version]
  • Hey Baby Game (a first-person shooter about sexual harassment) [ADA version]
  • McVideo Game (a political take on fast food) [ADA version]
  • Third World Farmer (a farming game that exposes the challenges of the third world) [ADA version]

Plan to play your game for about 20-30 minutes in order to really get a good sense of what the game is about.

When you are done playing, complete the following questions.

  1. Game Environment: Note the visuals, music, and other environmental elements of the game. Games create a world for their players. What can you infer based upon the designer's decisions for the world you engaged? Select 2-3 notable examples, and comment on them.
  2. Game System: What are the rules of the game? What claims about the world does the game make based upon the provided rules? Select 1-2 notable examples and comment on them.
  3. Summarize: Based upon the above examples that you mentioned, briefly summarize the central argument of this game in your own words.
  4. Test: Does the game make a valid deductive argument? Why or why not?
