yourThis oral presentation will be all about recognizing, understanding, and mastering logical fallacies. Here is our working list of logical fallacies that you may look up in either your textbook’s glossary or online through minimal research: ● Begging the question; ● Circular reasoning; ● Weak analogy; ● Ad hominem fallacy (personal attack); ● Creating a straw man; ● Hasty or sweeping generalization (jumping to a conclusion); ● Either/or fallacy (false dilemma); ● Red herring; ● Slippery slope; ● Equivocation; ● Appeal to doubtful authority; ● Misuse of statistics; ● Post hoc, ergo propter hoc (after this, therefore because of this); ● Non sequitur (It does not follow); and ● Bandwagon Fallacy. You should be able to research any of the logical fallacies above by reading selected chapters in the textbook or using Google to look up the terms above. Along with the rubric below, you should be using the following list to gauge the preparation, rehearsal, and delivery of your presentation: 1) A description of your assigned logical fallacies (definition of terms, etc.); 2) An effective presentation that engages your audience through an activity; 3) An electronic presentation platform, e.g., PowerPoint, Prezi, Glogster, MuseumBox, or another comparable tool that will utilize technology during your presentation. Again, your presentation should be about 5-to-7 minutes. You will have points deducted from your overall presentation if you do not adhere to the time limitation. You should record your presentation for free through Zoom, ScreenCast-o-matic, your phone, or any other tool to record yourself presenting your work.
