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!

ASDAN CoPE 12 Module Bundle

ASDAN CoPE 12 Module Bundle

A collection of the 12 modules required to compete the ASDAN CoPE Award. The following resource is intended to be used alongside the official ASDAN CoPE Student Book and in no way replaces this resource. The following pages can be used as a teaching aid or as direct worksheets for students to use. It should be noted that the ASDAN CoPE course also requires a number of skills sheets, these are not included in this pack as they are in the official student book. Level 2 notification: The level 2 course requires a higher level of independent work and so resources would need to be used as teaching guidance rather than student worksheets.
