Language and Thinking Chapter 8 Warm Up What is the connection between language and decision-making?

Homework: Advertising Poster Pretend that you are advertising a product On a small poster (paper size), show a visual advertisement (could be real or you could make it up) that uses words and pictures to demonstrate the methods, strategies, and decisions that Advertisers make to get people to buy their product Research different articles to help you Recall what the Guest Speaker had to say In 1-2 sentences, explain how these methods, strategies, and decisions made

by advertisers impact the psychology of the consumer to get them to buy a product Learning Objectives Interpret the connection between language and decision-making Analyze different elements of language and reasoning

Build connections to your life Elements of Language Phonemes: Basic sounds of a language Morphemes: Units of meaning in a language Syntax: The way in which the words are arranged to make phrases and sentences

Examples of Elements of Language A. Phonemes: -The way I pronounce coffee -Difference between the o sound in dog and no B. Morphemes: -Pre= before -Use of s at the end of words to emphasize that the word is plural C.

Syntax -Subject>Verb>Dinner (Linda cooked dinner) Semantics and The Framing Effect Semantics: The relationship between language and the things depicted in the language Example: Right and Write The Framing Effect: Refers to the way in

which wording affects decision making Check For Understanding -Do you think Semantics makes ideas expressed through language more or less clear? -Have you seen the Framing Effect being used? Where was it used? How did it impact people? -How could language impact someones psychology?

Thank you for Smoking https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkbdbRjMX2Y How is he using Semantics? What role does it play in making his point? How is he using The Framing Effect?

Identify three myths about Bilingual Households and explain the truth about the myth Homework: 1-2 Page Essay Think about a critical decision that you have to make in the next couple years:

A. What is the process that you have to go through to make this decision? B. Decide what the Pros and Cons are of this decision and what information about the decision do you still need. C. What factors will play a role in you making this decision?

D. What Biases/Beliefs will play a role in this decision? MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE CLEAR THESIS STATEMENT, Introduction, Body Paragraphs, and Conclusion Learning Objectives

Interpret the three Units of Thought Analyze methods and steps to solve problems Build Connections to your life Decision Making and Judgement Reasoning: The use of information to reach conclusion Premise: Idea or statement that provides basic information that allows us to

draw conclusions Deductive Reasoning: The conclusion is true if the premises are true Inductive Reasoning: We arrive at conclusions through individual cases or particular facts Confirmation Bias: Seeking to prove or confirm a hypothesis rather than disprove it Overconfidence: Only looking at what you want to look at to make a decision Example of Deductive Reasoning

San Francisco is in California A lot of Hippies live in San Francisco Therefore, a lot of Hippies live in California 1. What are the premises here? 2. What is the conclusion? 3. Is this a good way to come to a conclusion? Why or why not? Example of Inductive Reasoning Spain and Portugal are near each other and have similar languages

Sweden, Denmark, and Norway are near each other, and they all have similar languages Therefore, countries that are near each other have similar languages 1. What are the premises here? 2. What is the conclusion? 3. Is this a good way to come to a conclusion? Why or why not? 4. What is a better way to come to a conclusion? Deductive or Inductive Reasoning? Why do you think this?

Check for Understanding Which form of reasoning do you think is better to use when making decisions: Deductive or Inductive Reasoning? Why do you think this? Have you ever seen a Confirmation Bias used before? Why and how was it used? List three examples of Overconfidence in your own life Brainstorming

What connections can you draw between the different Units of Thought? Identify an example of each Unit of Thought that you have in your life Student Problems: One Paragraph What is the connection between thinking

and problem solving? In one paragraph, describe a recent problem that you faced and how you went about solving the problem. Then think about other ways in which you could have solved that problem Algorithms and Heuristics Algorithms: Specific Procedure that leads to the

solution of a problem when performed correctly Heuristics: Rules that often, but not always, help us find the solution of a problem Applying the Material: Hangman How are Heuristics being used to figure out the word? What are other games/ways/times when you use Heuristics to solve problems?

What is the difference between Heuristics and Algorithms? Good Will Hunting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ta3sClUQmfM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNwVdc7Er8s How are Algorithms being used here? Do Algorithms only apply to Mathematics? Could they apply to other subjects? If so, what examples can you think of?

Create an example of an Algorithm for any problem in your life Problem Solving Methods Trial and Error: Try different things until you find one that works Difference Reduction: Identify the goal, where we are in relation to achieving the goal, and the direction we must go to move closer to it Means-End Analysis: Certain things we do will have certain results Working Backward: Identify the solution and figure out how to get to the solution

Analogy: Similarity between two or more items, events, or situations Check For Understanding Rank the problem solving methods from most important to least important in terms of how helpful they are Did you use any of these steps when you solved the problem that you wrote about? If so, which ones? If not, which ones would have been helpful

for you to use? Problem Solving Worksheet Answer the questions on the Problem Solving Worksheet and be sure to fill out what Problem Solving technique you used to solve
