Communicating and Arguing With and Without Fallacies

Create three short dialogues in which you argue that someone else (not you) in your home should take out the trash every day.

Give three reasons that include fallacies. Identify the fallacies. Then create alternative dialogues giving three reasons to avoid taking out the trash that is fallacy free. Remember that fallacies are common errors in reasoning that will undermine the logic of your argument. Fallacies can be either illegitimate arguments or irrelevant points and are often identified because they lack evidence that supports their claim.
