Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a lesson plan that helps students learn how to identify fallacies in the media. The lesson includes direct instruction, research, and application of what was learned. Students are taught a number of different techniques that candidates and media outlets use in delivering fallacies and then they are asked to identify them and create some of their own. Overall, this is an important and valuable experience for students so they will be more informed as they become part of the electorate. It should be noted that the lesson includes a lot of links to online video clips that should be checked prior to use. It is also recommended that it might be helpful to reduce the number of techniques covered and focus on a few that are most often seen in the media and used by candidates.
