The Fallacy Journal
The Fallacy Journal is a collection of ten examples of fallacies that present
themselves in visual media. You are the sleuth—discovering and exposing these
fallacies in your journal. Use the list of fallacies in Rottenberg (pp. 308-318) to
define your fallacies. Here’s what your journal should look like:
1) Under your MLA heading and your centered title, discuss what fallacies you
uncovered, and explain your process of finding the examples and discovering
what fallacies they represented. This should be no more than one page, but it
may be less. Make sure the page is carefully crafted, edited, and proofread.
2) Each page thereafter should contain one of the fallacies you found. This can
be a photograph, a meme, a print advertisement—any still piece of visual
media. It can also be a link to a television or computer advertisement. On the
page, explain what the fallacy is and why it is a fallacy. This should be one
brief paragraph—two to four sentences.
3) You may use the same fallacy twice if your examples are strong. Your journal
must illustrate between five and ten different fallacies.
