Fallacies
For this Assignment, you will test your understanding of fallacies by creating an argument with fallacies in it, then identifying the fallacies and explaining how they operate.
The paper will be at least 4 pages total and contain both Part I and II in a single document. Please label Part I and II so it is possible to easily identify each part of the project.
Part I: Compose a 1-page argument that one might make in relation to your field of study, but which is purposefully flawed. Employ at least four logical fallacies in the argument. For example, the argument can be related to how the public perceives your field, how a newcomer to the field may make an error, or addressing a controversial topic in your field.
Part II: In the next 2–3 pages, you will take on the role of a leader in your profession. In the scenario for Part II, you have been asked to address the errors with the person who submitted the 1-page argument from Part I. You will not want to be harsh with the person who made the mistakes, but will use leadership knowledge, skills, and abilities to help make corrections. Use your critical thinking and analytical skills to evaluate the arguments, explain how they should be corrected, and offer guidance for improved argumentation in the future.

Analyze the argument from Part I. Identify and label the logical fallacies being used in the argument. Be specific.
Using clear argumentation, explain the implications of those fallacies in the workplace, and why the fallacies would be problematic. Why do you believe the person making the argument used these tactics?
Offer guidance: How could the person constructing this argument avoid making those mistakes in argumentation? What would have strengthened each of the claims?
