Hasty conclusion like toy balloon: easy blow up, easy pop.
–Charlie Chan at the Race Track
Your homework is to make sure you have the 3 scenarios on your blog.
Here are 10 logical fallacies. Research them here or/and here and then create for your blog three short scenarios: two of which are examples that you make up of the fallacies below and one that is meant to be logically consistent. In class, we’ll examine these paragraphs and see if the class can guess which is which. Make sure that it’s not obvious that you’re using a fallacy. Make us work; make us better.
- Begging the Question
- Slippery Slope
- False Dilemma
- Post Hoc
- Biased Sample
- Gambler’s Fallacy
- Hasty Generalization
- Ad Hominem
- Straw Man
- Tu Quoque
Remember: DON'T label your scenarios as it will take the fun out of guessing what's what.
Also remember that the vocab test and the timed write have been moved to Monday!
