Logical Fallacies, an introduction (Educational)

by Beverly Pearl

ISBN:

Binding:
Paperback
Language:
English

Danny finds an abandoned baby crow and takes care of it. The crow, now attached to Danny, follows him to school every day. The other students jokingly refer to the crow as "Danny's Dog". Logical Fallacies begin to unfold when a bully pushes Danny down. Through a variety of logically fallacious exchanges, Danny is blamed and punished for starting the fight. During a second encounter with the bully, "Danny's Dog" catches the attention of a teacher with his loud cawing, in time for her to see the lie unfold. The teacher decides to teach the children about what logical fallacies are and how to spot them. The story is presented as a poem that shares the experiences of the fictional Grove St. School children as they learn about logical fallacies. Illustrations include speech bubbles representing some of the fallacies as they may manifest among school children. The same fallacious discussion and bullying that is found in the school yard can often be found within upper management and around board room tables. It is hoped that introducing these concepts early will help contribute to the emotional intelligence of children and ultimately a more enlightened leadership in governments and organizations. If we form good strategic thought patterns earlier in life, our decisions may be more likely to be based on evidence rather than slick manipulation, bullying and personal agendas. Future managers, politicians and directors may have richer, more meaningful discussions if decisions are based on evidence. A knowledgeable population might not be easy to gaslight if they are empowered to trust their own instincts, acknowledge nuance and think for themselves. This book was inspired by a need for understanding of what logical fallacies are and how to spot them. While intended for use in the classroom, it is hoped the it will also be beneficial for adult readers.

“There is nothing worse than losing a child. Death, starvation, torture—all pale by comparison. Your child is your hope, your love, your destiny. Most parents would agree.” After the loss of a beautiful, talented daughter, the author’s family starts to unravel. As the family grieves, a long and stable marriage begins to fall apart. To try to save the marriage, the author reflects on the love she felt for her husband, before children. Beadle recalls their early years in Tanzania. From close encounters with angry elephants, to a dangerous dance with a black mamba snake, to malaria, homesickness, helplessness, and guilt, the couple’s relationship has withstood the trials of time and place … until now. Beadle also captures her daughter, Jen’s, remarkable life, growing up in Ottawa, Ivory Coast, Egypt, Jamaica, the Philippines, Paris, Ethiopia, and Bangladesh. Voodoo rituals, scuba diving adventures, dancing semi-professionally in Jamaica, and combing the high hills of Ethiopia to search for the Abyssinia wolf—Jennifer did it all, only to die too young from cancer. We are left feeling like we know Jenny and her family, and rooting for her parents to stay together—to escape the oppressive weight of regret, guilt, and fear that is spawned by the death of a child. “The Jenny Tree” is a sensitive and inspiring journey through joy and grief, told through the lens of dynamic world travellers.
