Fallacious D

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.

All right 2nd period, it's back to the way it was. I almost couldn't find this theme -- they moved it and a bunch that used to be free into the premium section.
