Logical fallacies – correcting your critical thinking and arguments!

A colleague shared this excellent site and resource for students as they build their critical thinking skills.  For e-assignments, teachers can embed links in comments to point out such fallacies as ‘the bandwagon‘, ‘the Texas sharpshooter‘, or ‘the slippery slope‘ and let students work through their own solutions!  This fits nicely within the IB Approaches to Learning and new Humanities Assessment Criteria!
