R&W: Grammar and Logical Fallacies

We went over and shared the grammar work from yesterday after spending some initial time wrapping it up. Afterwards, we began going over the 26 logical fallacies that we will be using to find holes/flaws in arguments that we analyze in terms of their use of rhetoric. Here’s the PowerPoint. Third hour got to “Innuendo” and 4th hour got to “Glittering Generality”.We will need to finish tomorrow prior to the vocab quiz and 20% project work. There will be a reading over the weekend, so if you are absent tomorrow (Friday) please read through one of the Teach for America articles here, and some introductory material about Teach for America here. We are going to consider the controversy, and who has the better argument.

Here’s a calendar for the next few weeks. As always, it is subject to change.

Study for vocab quiz #4 tomorrow! Notebooks are due tomorrow! Check for the notebook rubric in yesterday’s post.
