UNIT TWO: There’s only one exercise due for Unit , but it takes some prep work. First, review the Power Point slide lecture “Logical Fallacies.” Take notes unless you already know this stuff — it takes some thinking. Then, read the silly story “Love Is a Fallacy,” which is just full of logical fallacies. When you’ve completed this prep work (and you really won’t be able to complete the exercise until you’ve read the materials), complete the following exercise: Make a list of each of the eight fallacies that the narrator teaches to Polly in “Love Is A Fallacy,” and define each fallacy, briefly explaining how it works in the story. Next, write your own example for each of the eight fallacies. Then, write a paragraph on which fallacy you see most commonly; it could be among friends, in the media, or in any speech by a politician. Alternatively, you may describe one you personally have been committing without being aware of it. Review your work with a peer before you submit it, if possible. Exchange drafts and comment on the personal examples of the fallacies. Are they accurate and logical examples? Finally, please write a paragraph or two of reflection on what you gained by learning about a few of these logical fallacies. How might you apply what you’ve learned to your own life? Please note that the posted deadline is ABSOLUTE. The labs support the composition of the essays and must be completed before the essay for the unit is submitted.
