Methodology: working to develop fundamental skills by developing collaborative, interpersonal problem-solving, and creatively active engagement skills. We will accomplish this by developing an artistic-philosophical narrative that guides the curriculum and the puzzles/problems. Jake, can you post some of the potential pics for this (the one you discussed with Crisol)?

For the Sendero Program (Logic Section) we decided to focus on Skill sets of the clients, with emphasis on a visual style logic that will lead them to systematic evaluations and improvements. We will focus also on the following skills:

Pattern recognition - to implement and make better decisions (decision theory)

Anticipatory analysis - planning for the future so they can anticipate and plan for complex situations (planning for possibilities)

Compare and contrast - Projection and Metaphor thinking to develop emphatic reasoning

Organizational skills

Structures and systems thinking

Recognition of symbols (metaphorical thinking and connection with Creative Writing)

Critical and Reflection Analysis

Great meeting today. Let's work on 2 questions:

(1) Research best practices for teaching logic for children (education, psychology, P4C, mathematics)

(2) Continue examining issues of coherence (non-contradiction) in relation to Brower's revolution of intuitionist mathematics
