Today I handed out a review for the persuasion quiz which you will be taking tomorrow. If you need any of the notes on persuasion you can find links to my PowerPoints here (persuasion) and here (logical fallacies).

Logical fallacies flashcards/study games.

Reminder: I will be collecting journals on Friday (or Thursday if you’ll be leaving early for spring break,) and I expect to see:

  • 2 sets of notes (Persuasion and logical fallacies)
  • 2 pre-lesson questions
  • Your ad analysis exercise. (You can find instructions at the end of the persuasion notes.)

Book talk note: If we don’t get through everyone’s book talks by the end of the day tomorrow then they will become up to 20 points of extra credit.

Today we played a review game using the Jeopardy! template on the smartboard. If you were absent today and want to see the game to get expanded review notes you’ll need to come in and see me before the final on Thursday.
