Objective

Students will use propaganda techniques and logical fallacies to argue against something great.

In this series, students will learn about five types of logical fallacies or propaganda techniques: ad hominem, slippery slope, stacking the deck, bandwagoning, and appeal to fear.

Steps

  1. First, students will learn the definition of each tool of propaganda and see some of my examples.
  2. Then, they'll create a few propaganda examples of their own.
  3. In the end, students will create a final product, bringing multiple logical fallacies together. They'll pick a great idea, person, invention, etc. Plan an argument against it using at least three types of logical fallacies. Then develop a final product, such as a: video, skit, poster, website, etc based on the plan.
