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!

End of Year Quiz 2018

End of Year Quiz 2018

Every year, I keep getting asked if I am creating another quiz because everyone seems to love them. As we finish school on the 22nd of June this year, I have been able to get this one made during times when the kids are involved in end of year activities! I was lucky as it is so time consuming! The music round alone took me 4 hours to create and I was able to do it whilst kids were on a out of school visit! This will fill a full hour including the marking, but you must be tight on timing. I would suggest for each picture in the places round - 10 seconds. For the personalities round 2 minutes and for the wotz dat?? round 3 minutes maximum. The conundrum round should have no more than 10 minutes, but they should be able to do it in 5 as the focus is English punctuation and there are only so many forms of punctuation. The music round takes 15 minutes (video I have created). My quizzes usually prove to be very popular and the kids love them! Enjoy!

The Role and Importance of Yoga Yogi Yoginis

The Role and Importance of Yoga Yogi Yoginis

Used for OCR but can easily be adapted. Pupils will be able to identify the different types of yoga and why yogis/yoginis may be considered important to Hindus. I use Gavin Flood (1996) ‘Introduction to Hinduism’ for the information aspect but videos identified also explain the different types of yoga.

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.
