This assignment is given before types of fallacies are taught, as a way for students to be able to recognize agendas in commercials and fallacious reasoning.
Assignment Procedures :
1.) Choose 5 relevant commercials on YouTube to show to your class for this analysis. This will take some prep time, but I think it's important to pick recent ads they may have seen but never realized were fallacious.
2.) Play a commercial and complete analysis together as a class.
3.) Allow students to analyze commercials on their own.
