3 LET’S DISCUSS YOUR READING FOR THIS WEEK. Turn to page 425: Anna Quindlen: “Newcomers by Numbers” 3

4 4 Title of Article Claim: Statistics: Examples: Expert Authority: Logic and Reasoning: Emotional Appeals:

5 EVALUATION Get up and find another person at the other side of the room who was assigned a different author. Share your findings and decide which author seems to provide a more convincing claim. Write a written response to the following question. 5

6 BE PREPARED TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS 1. Which author was more convincing? 2. Why was she more convincing? Give support 2- 3 sentences (Not: Because I agree with her.) 6

7 LET’S DO OUR PRESENTATIONS. As groups are presenting, please complete your charts in your emotional appeals & logical fallacies packet. The three columns should be completed with these categories: name of fallacy, definition, example. Please give the presenters your respectful attention: go outside to respond to texts or answer cell phones and avoid side conversations. When you come up to present, please introduce yourselves and tell the class the fallacies you will be presenting. 7

8 PRESENTATION GRADING 1. You will receive your scores after presentations are over this week. 2. It will consist of three parts: Presentation itself ( ) Fallacies chart (turned in next week after class) (Engrade) Average of member evaluation scores (Engrade) 8

9 PLEASE ADD TWO ADDITIONAL FALLACIES. 9

10 TWO WRONGS MAKE A RIGHT  Argument used to distract attention from a wrongdoing by claiming that similar actions went unnoticed or unpunished. Why bother trying to conserve energy? China is opening a new coal burning power plant every day. If they’re not doing their part to prevent climate change, why should we? So what if I don’t separate the cans and newspapers out from the garbage for recycling? I don’t have that much time. Neither do most other people. 10

11 HASTY GENERALIZATION An all-inclusive statement made in “in haste” without allowing for exceptions and qualifiers. If you’re in the market to buy a dog, don’t get a Shetland collie. All of them are nervous and high-strung. My friend, Pamela, has one and that dog yaps at every little sound. Producing one calm Shetland collie negates the argument. 11

12 LET’S GO OVER THE EXERCISES IN YOUR TEXTBOOK. TURN TO PAGE 366. On the top of your paper, please label it “Logical Fallacies-Part 2.” Identify logical fallacies being used the odd- numbered questions. We are going to do them one at a time. 12

13 LOGICAL FALLACIES false analogy slippery slope non sequitur oversimplification red herring rationalization two wrongs make a right 13
