Logical Fallacies and Cognitive Biases Display Pack (Philosophy/Psychology)

Logical Fallacies and Cognitive Biases Display Pack (Philosophy/Psychology)

This display pack is designed to engage students in reflecting on their thinking and argument. The pack includes two displays: Logical fallacies covering a range of 21 examples of irrationality including: Strawman, slippery slope, ad hominum, black or white, appeal to authority, bandwagon, middle ground, begging the question, non-representative sample, moral equivalency, non sequitur, red herring, splitting hairs, non-testable hypothesis, anecdotal support, genetic, post hoc ergo propter hoc, appeal to tradition, appeal to emotion, affirming the consequent and denying the antecedent. Cognitive biases covering a range of 18 reasons why we all fail to be objective including: Anchoring, confirmation bias, declinism, framing, fundamental attribution error, the halo effect, backfire effect, reactance, groupthink, belief bias, availability heuristic, clustering illusion, conservatism bias, blind spot bias, the ostrich effect, zero risk, in-group bias and the Dunning-Kruger effect. All of the displays are styled in a high contrast white on black or black on white (apart from the red herring of course…) They are eye-catching and informative for your students of all ages from Year 7 through to Year 13. Great for an RE, Philosophy or Psychology classroom. Maybe these should be in every classroom - just think about the world we could create! Instructions: Just cut around the shape leaving a small border of white. I’ve included an example of image for displaying on a small board but you could display these around the walls or however you wish. You could create a board for each or put both together!

The Weight of a Thousand Feathers by Brian Conagan

The Weight of a Thousand Feathers by Brian Conagan

Angry, stirring and tender, this is a bold, questioning exploration of the lengths to which we’ll go for the people we love. From the Costa Children’s Book Award winning author of When Mr Dog Bites and The Bombs That Brought Us Together. Bobby Seed has questions. What’s another word for ‘thesaurus’? How can I tell Bel I want her as my girl friend, not my girlfriend? How much pain is Mum in today? Has she taken her pills? And sometimes, secretly, Why us? Bobby’s little brother Danny has questions too. Will Bobby let him have Rice Krispies for dinner? And can he stay up late on the computer? And why won’t Mum’s stupid illness just GO AWAY? But it’s Mum’s question for Bobby that could turn everything on its head. It’s the Big One. The Unthinkable One. If Bobby agrees, he won’t just be soothing her pain. He’ll be helping to end it. Would he? Could he? Perfect for readers of Patrick Ness and Malorie Blackman.

Cosmetics ARE NOT tested on animals

Cosmetics ARE NOT tested on animals

An internet quiz by Understanding Animal Research of over 4,000 people has revealed that only 38% of respondents are aware that it is illegal to test cosmetics or their ingredients on animals in the UK. The UK ended this practice in 1998 and a 2013 EU-wide ban means that it illegal for any cosmetic product to be sold in any EU country if either the product or its ingredients are tested on animals This film shows people on the street being asked about animals and cosmetics. http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/communications-media/british-public-misled-over-cosmetic-tests/ Respondents were asked to select from a list which shops they believed used animals to test the cosmetic products they sold in the UK. Boots, Tesco and Sainsbury’s were all picked by over 40% of people; The Body Shop was selected by 30% and Lush by 14%. Understanding Animal Research has written to all major supermarkets and cosmetic retailers, urging them to put additional information in their stores to help inform the public. It was not just cosmetic testing which stumped members of the public. When asked to identify which of a range of medicines used animals in their development, only 43% correctly recognised that animals were key to the development of all of them, including: vaccines (such as polio, meningitis and HPV), antibiotics, anaesthetics and asthma inhalers. Wendy Jarrett, CEO of Understanding Animal Research, said: “The proliferation of ‘Not tested on animals’ or ‘Cruelty-Free’ logos has led many to believe that other cosmetic products sold on the UK market are tested on animals – something which has not been the case for 18 years. While animals continue to play a small but key role in medical developments, the UK has successfully eliminated such testing for cosmetics and, more recently, household products.” For more information, check out our overview on UK and EU law. EU Regulation 1223/2009, banned both the testing of cosmetics or their ingredients on animals, and the import and sale of such products from abroad. However, most ingredients will have been tested at some point in the past. While the EU, and many other countries, have banned tests on cosmetics or their ingredients, some countries still require cosmetics to undergo animal tests for regulatory purposes. The UK Government is working with regulators in other countries to support them in moving away from cosmetic tests on animals.

SOUL COLLECTOR ~ When A Spirit Speaks from Beyond > Compelling & True Story!

SOUL COLLECTOR ~ When A Spirit Speaks from Beyond > Compelling & True Story!

When a spirit reaches out from the other side, it wants something. Be it acknowledgment, or notice, or freedom from entrapment. It may be as simple as to communicate with another living being. Or to tell its story. Visit one special property where an estranged spirit disrupts its new family. Disoriented, this troubled soul captures the attention of all who trespass, but in particular it attaches to one human who was receptive to its advances. Through a series of intriguing encounters a connection was made that transcended time and space. Curiosity drove both sides to explore and seek the truth. Walk within the bounds of this totally true and riveting tale to discover the events that helped two souls meet across the veil and resolve their karma.
