Critical Thinking Assignment essay

This Critical Thinking assignment is designed to provide you experience analyzing editorials for fallacies or "dirty tricks" used to win an argument.

Reference a daily or Sunday edition of a newspaper, or use the online New York Times, and look for examples of at least 5 fallacies. The editorial section of the paper is a good place to start.

In the essay, explain and document what type of fallacy or "dirty tricks" you find. First, cite the specific editorial or article that you are referencing. Analyze the context, the type of fallacy, and why it is fallacy; use approximately two paragraphs for each of the five examples.

There are more than 44 "dirty tricks" that have labels for misleading or fallacious arguments. The following list of dirty tricks will get you started:

Accuse him/her of sliding down a slippery slope

Appeal to authority

Throw in a red herring

Throw in some statistics

Make sweeping, glittering generalizations

Attack the person (not the argument)

Appeal to fear

Use double standards

Rewrite history

Demonize their side, sanitize yours

Ignore the main point

Attack evidence (that undermines our case)

Devise analogies (and metaphors) that support your view (even if they are misleading and false)

Oversimplify the issue

Raise nothing but objections

Apply the concepts learned through the textbook readings and learning notes.

Your paper should be 2-3 double spaced pages in length, well written, and formatted according to APA Style

Taidot: Article Writing, Tutkimusten kirjoitus
