Inductive Reasoning
  • Inductive – specific to general: teen drivers accident rate, teens making rash decisions –teen driving age should be raised
  • When quoting someone, don’t change the context or meaning of the quote.

  • Present evidence from reliable sources.
  • Discern opinion from fact.
deductive reasoning
Deductive Reasoning
  • Deductive – general to specific: teens can’t vote or sign binding contracts, they can’t see R-rated movies, they can’t stay out past curfew, they can’t buy alcohol or cigarettes. These restrictions exist for good reasons, to allow teens time to mature before handling adult responsibilities. Therefore, raising the driving age for teenagers simply reaffirms our customary thinking regarding teen behavior.
  • Major Premise: state a broad idea
  • Minor Premise: Offer a specific case of the broad idea
