The Purposeful Argument
Phillips, H., & Bostian, P. (2015). The purposeful argument: A practical guide (2nd ed.). https://www.vitalsource.com
Chapter 5: Read Critically and Avoid Fallacies, Chapter 11: Support an Argument with Fact (Logos), Credibility (Ethos), and Emotion (Pathos), and Chapter 13: Develop and Edit Argument Structure and Style
Chapter 5 covers strategies that can be used to critically read sources and also addresses strategies for avoiding logical fallacies. Critical reading is an important part of avoiding fallacies, as the latter can often appear reasonable without a close inspection. Chapter 11 defines and illustrates how to use the rhetorical devices of logos, pathos, and ethos in an argumentative setting. Chapter 13 provides strategies for revising and editing your argument in your final draft next week, which makes this a good resource to revisit when you begin that task.
