This is a fun exercise to get us started with the Discussion Board activities and limber up our critical thinking and listening skills! Go through the normal routines of your day and jot down at least two examples of a statement that is offered as fact, but actually commits one of the logical fallacies explained in your reading. You may use a statement heard on the news, something that you read, something that was stated in conversation or even something that you may have said to someone else. When you are ready to complete this exercise, post your statement and the source, (even if it is simply “conversation with friend”) and identify which logical fallacy was committed.
