CAS 110 - Public Speaking (Carter)

This guide provides resources to help support the CAS 110 course and assignments.

Reflection on Class Discussion

Reviewing Postman's article here are the Red Flags he mentions:

  • Pomposity
  • Fanaticism
  • Eichmannism
  • Inanity
  • Superstition

The other Red Flags mentioned in class are:

  • Misinformation
  • Unsupported Assumptions
  • Confirmation Bias
  • Substution of anecdotes for data
  • Deliberate Disingenuousness

All of these things help us to distinguish opinion and fact and to critically analyze what we choose to provide as supporting factual evidence for our own claims.
