Since we are using
Rome to Reformation (RTR) curriculum and "Little D" scoring 12th grade word usage in his ITBS testing last year, I figured critical thinking would be a good elective for him this year. It goes along with all the Roman philosophers of the time, so why not!
Once I decided on the course, I then had to find the curriculum. Thank you Fallacy Detective! I know MFW likes to use it for their high school curriculum, but I needed a way to challenge my son and use his gift for word usage. Each chapter discusses a fallacy that is used in logic and comes with exercises at the end of each chapter. It will open your eyes😳 when you realize the different fallacies we may use in our own reasoning and everyday conversations!
Anyways, I had to come up with a project for each lesson. Since "Little D" loves movies and remembers EVERYTHING he sees and hears, I designed this worksheet for studying the Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc in Statistics lesson. It's hard to pinpoint them and all I had to use was use a video on YouTube for Frosty the Snowman. So far we've studied 18 different fallacies. Can you find them? Feel free to grab a FREE copy of the worksheet I created for you to use. Go to my Google Drive to get a copy of the Google Slide and download it as a PDF or keep it on your Google Drive to use in the future.
