Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate competence in
the area of fallacy identification.
Grading: Five entries worth a total of 50 points. Ten points each.
Instructions: Each student will compile a journal as directed below:
1. The journal is a presentation of five fallacies from the print
media. Study print media and identify five items that represent
five different fallacies. The best sources are editorials, letters to
the editor, and advertisements. You can also use business
2. For each entry, cut out the article/advertisement and highlight
the portion that contains the fallacy. Paste it to a sheet of paper,
and type a paragraph explanation telling:
Which fallacy it commits.

WHY you think it is that. The emphasis in this
assignment is the persuasiveness of your “WHY”
argument, rather than the precise identification of
fallacies. So argue your position well!
