Help students identify logical fallacies with this 40-slide introductory lecture featuring definitions and modern examples relevant to their lives. Slides download as both Prezi Next and Google Slides versions.

Use the optional guided notesheet to help students who need note-taking structure or assistance. Finally, reinforce the lecture content with an application/assessment handout that can be used as a solo or team in-class activity or a traditional quiz. Answer keys to both handouts are included, of course. All student handouts are included in both printable PDF and Google Slides versions.

There are many fallacies used to sway an audience, but I’ve focused this lesson on 10 of the most common leaps in logic, including:

Hasty Generalization

Faulty Causality

Either/Or (False Dichotomy)

Slippery Slope


Sentimental Appeal

Scare Tactics

Appeal to False Authority

Ad Hominem

Straw Man
