This PowerPoint will introduce your late middle school or high school students to 14 types of Fallacies of Reason or Logic. Each slide contains a fallacy type, definition, and example.
The fallacies covered are:
Fallacy of Composition
Fallacy of Dichotomy
Appeal to Tradition
Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right
Post Hoc / Incorrect Assumption of Cause
Appeal to the People (Hoc Populum)
Appeal to Ignorance
In addition to the PowerPoint, the document includes scaffolded notes (see the thumbnail to the right) and a 14 question check for understanding with an answer key.
This is sure to be all you need in order to help your students understand logical fallacy. Great for use in the English Language Arts or Social Studies classroom!
Thanks for using Literacy Across the Curriculum!
