“Should same-sex marriage be allowed?” As part of a study of recognizing logical fallacies learners read John Stemberger’s April 12, 2012 argument against same-sex marriage published on the opinion page of the Orlando Sentinel. They then label a series of statements taken from the article as facts, opinions, or a mixture of the two. Class members also examine other arguments and search for the presence or absences of fallacies. The topical nature of the subject is sure to engage your pupils.
