Chalk Talk: Writing Persuasively: Avoiding the Slippery Slope
There are a number of fallacies that can hinder a successful argument. One of these is the slippery slope fallacy. This particular fallacy occurs when the person creating the argument makes an assertion that sets off a chain reaction of consequences that may or may not make sense. A slippery slope argument may look something like this: If one does not study for their pre-algebra exam, then they will likely fail the test. As a result of failing the test, they will not be able to advance to the next course. This will lead to them not being able to complete the courses needed to get into a choice college, and the student’s life will be effectively ruined.
This is clearly not a logical argument. While tests are important, and students should prepare for them, a single transgression will not necessarily unfold into the string of consequences suggested. The fallacy sensationalizes the initial action of failing the exam, turning it into a life-altering experience. It is important to avoid this, as it takes credibility away from the claim; in this case, that it is important to study for exams.
