1. Define the fallacy. Try to do this in your own words. If you do quote fallacy files, don’t forget to use quotation marks and cite. (Give the author and date of publication).
2. Briefly explain an example (i.e., from Fallacy.Files, or another source). Make sure you cite the source.
3. Give YOUR OWN example of the fallacy.
3. Explain why the example fallacious arguments fail to give good reasons for their conclusions. In other words, what’s wrong with committing this fallacy?
