Kidnapped by UFOs?

Ideas from Teachers


(High School/Early College)
I showed NOVA's "Kidnapped by UFOs?" program to my class as part of a semester-long course on Critical Thinking in the Social Sciences. After the program was over, I gave them a choice of essay topics mainly dealing with fallacies and weak reasoning demonstrated by those supporting the existence of UFOs/Abductions, or the questionable research methods used by the scientists promoting this. I am reachable by e-mail to share more details.
