To develop the study guide, each student must research and prepare a presentation on the assigned set of critical reading terms. Students will be assigned by the first letter of their last names.  You may use PowerPoint, Google Slides, or you may create a video. Students within an assigned group may work together to create the presentation, or you may each create your presentation individually. If you work as a group, you will all receive the same grade.

  • The presentation must include the following information:
    • Name of the critical reading strategies or logical fallacies being presented;
    • A formal definition of the strategy or fallacy as given by a scholarly source. You may use the resources within the Critical Reading Open Educational Resources;
    • A layperson’s (in your own words) definition of the strategy or fallacy; 
    • Two examples of each strategy or fallacy defined (Please do not use examples that come from any of the resources in the Critical Reading Open Educational Resources as we already have access to those. Each example should come with a brief explanation so that we know how it exemplifies the strategy or fallacy in question.);
  • All sources used must be cited in either MLA or APA. Don’t forget your parenthetical citations; and
  • The presentation will be posted here on Brightspace by the due date. Because we are creating a study guide for the following week’s activities, late assignments cannot be accepted.
  • Please remember to include everyone’s name on the title page (if you work as a group).
