This lesson covers six logical fallacies: circular argument, ad hominem, ad populum, false cause, red herring, and straw man. It can be used in a larger unit about rhetoric and persuasion, or on its own!
- Slides to use when teaching this lesson (including definitions, written examples, examples in images, and some whole-class identification practice)
- Guided notes for students to fill in during the lesson (including blanks to keep them engaged, important images from the slides, and a space to create their own examples as a checkpoint assessment)
