Part 2 Click the link below to read Mark Twain''s story "The Danger of Lying in Bed." http://content.learntoday.info/W112_Spring_10/site/Media/Fig04-36.BMP In a 1-page essay, provide an analysis that identifies fallacious reasoning in the story and explain why.
Part 3: The idea behind a comparative essay is, quite simply, that you take two or more things or ideas and compare their points of similarity or difference. For your second assignment in the Essay Series, create a persuasive essay. In 1-2 pages, compare the following proverbs: Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we may die! Early to bed and early to rise makes one healthy, wealthy and wise. As this is intended as a purely comparative essay, avoid favoring one proverb over another. Instead, your purpose is to analyze each mindset as objectively as possible and compare the relative strengths and weaknesses of both points, regardless of your personal opinion regarding them.
Part4: The following is an excerpt from the story "Bullet in the Brain" by Tobias Wolff: …Anders saw that the other woman, her friend, was looking in the same direction. And then the tellers stopped what they were doing, and the customers slowly turned, and silence came over the bank. Two men wearing black ski masks and blue business suits were standing to the side of the door. One of them had a pistol pressed against the guard''s neck. The guard''s eyes were closed, and his lips were moving. The other man had a sawed-off shotgun. "Keep your big mouth shut!" the man with the pistol said, though no one had spoken a word. "One of you tellers hits the alarm, you''re all dead meat. Got it?" The tellers nodded. "Oh, bravo," Anders said. "Dead meat." He turned to the woman in front of him. "Great script, eh? The stern, brass-knuckled poetry of the dangerous classes." For your initial posting, after reading the excerpt above, answer the following questions: What is going on in this scene? What will happen to Anders if he continues to criticize the robbers? What are ideas and facts are you basing this on? ( 2 responses are required)
Part 5: For your initial posting this week, provide an example of fallacious reasoning, either your own or someone you know. Explain why the reasoning was fallacious (questionable premise, suppressed evidence, or invalid inference) and what the result of that reasoning was. For your follow up posting, choose a classmates instance of fallacious reasoning and provide possible ways to identify and avoid the fallacy.
Part 6: Click the link below to read Mark Twain''s essay "The Late Benjamin Franklin."http://web.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail?sid=64af0315-ae8a-49c7-8495-35a32527ee4f%40sessionmgr104&vid=1&hid=104&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#db=a9h&AN=17955956 In a 1-page essay, provide an analysis of the text that identifies instances of fallacious reasoning or invalid argumentation. Explain why the instances you identify are fallacious or invalid.
Part 7: Being able to make inferences based on available information is an invaluable skill and part of thinking critically. Follow the link below to a text and series of questions that require you to use inference and extrapolation to provide answers. For each question, identify the most correct answer and provide a brief explanation (1-3 sentences) explaining why. Provide your answers in a separate document. (the file is attached for this assignment)
PART 8; an anecdote is essentially a short story about an interesting or relevant event that happened to someone. Anecdotal evidence is when, rather than providing evidence based on scientific research, statistics, or experimentation, personal stories related to a similar topic are collected and offered as evidence.
An example of this would be a friend of yours discouraging you from patronizing a local grocery store by telling you the story of how they thought they were treated rudely by the manager when reporting on an employee not rushing to wash their hands after coughing on them. Though usually compelling (it can be hard to disregard a good story), anecdotal evidence is not necessarily the most reliable source of information.

For your initial posting, discuss why you think anecdotal evidence is hard to ignore, and then provide an explanation of why it can be unreliable. (There should be 2 responses for this question).
