Class discussion was great today. I enjoyed hearing all the different input and ideas. Next week, I will remember to turn off my 'home' alarms so I don't accidentally cut class short again though lol
Wed 8/19: Read pgs 42-46 and do exercises
Thurs 8/20: Read pgs 47-51 and do ch. 1 Review exercises (skip exercise C on pg51)
Fri 8/21: Poster project. Create a poster depicting at least one of the fallacies you learned in chapter 1. You can use pictures from the internet or draw your own. Include color and your own details about each fallacy. The poster can be an advertisement (real or made up) or a cartoon with a witty caption. Be prepared to present and discuss in class.
*As I explained in class, this does not have to be poster sized. As long as it is neat and large enough to be seen by the class when you present it.
Mon 8/24: Complete poster and bring it to class tomorrow for presentation
Tues: 8/25: Turn in posters, discuss and review chapter 1
If they need to catch up:
