Product Description

This workbook edition of The Fallacy Detective now includes spaces for readers to write in their answers to the exercises!

Written for ages 12 through adult, readers will learn to recognize the fallacies they see every day, including the Red Herring, Ad Hominem attacks, the Straw Man, loaded questions, equivocation, circular reasoning, either-or, generalizations, analogies, propaganda, special pleading, slippery slope fallacies, and more. Dilbert, Calvin & Hobbes, Peanuts, and original cartoons illustrate many of the fallacies perfectly, and each chapter contains plenty of examples that make each fallacy easy to understand. Exercises and "The Fallacy Detective Game" provide fun ways to really remember what you've learned! 262 pages, softcover. Line-listed answer key included at the back of the book. 2015 Edition. Consumable and non-reproducible.

    I would certainly recommend this product for grade levels middle school and up. It will require no alteration for those age groups. For children under that age it will require some alteration to match the elementary school children's vocabulary. It's a great book.

    My family is enjoying this book. It's great for helping kids to recognize flaws in arguments and increases their ability to listen to what the other person is really saying.

Q: Is this a consumable workbook? I want to use this with three kids. Do I need to buy one per child or can I purchase one to use with all three?

A:

This book is not consumable. The activities can be used by a single student to reason through on their own or they can be used for group discussion.
