Quality of Explanation of the Subject Matter: Limited (1)

The explanations on the website for each logical fallacy are fairly clear, but some of the examples contain difficult language that may not be accessible for all users. This website helps to explain different types of logical fallacies, but it does not give information about why it is important for a student to learn about logical fallacies or how they relate to other content, such as writing. The chart alone give no explanation. Therefore, it must be used in conjunction with the suggested website.

Utility of Materials Designed to Support Teaching: Limited (1)

This chart is useful because it can be edited and changed to suit a variety of lessons. However, there is not a teacher's guide or other supporting documentation. Suggestions are not given for how to use the chart apart from the suggested website.

Quality of Technological Interactivity: Strong (2)

This chart is not interactive on its own. However, it is intended to be used with the suggested website, also a resource in OER Commons, and the website is interactive. Students are able to scroll over and choose which logical fallacies they want to study. Different learners could choose different fallacies, which creates a more individualized learning experience.

Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Strong (2)

This website focuses on logical fallacies, which are related to critical thinking in that an understanding of faulty logic can help a student to better analyze and construct an argument. The chart is also a helpful tool because it provides students with practice in using a graphic organizer for note taking, which is related to learning how to learn. There is a suggestion given in the item description to use the chart with actual argument texts to help identify and track logical fallacies. Using the chart in this way would also support deeper learning.
