Logical Fallacy: Circular Reasoning

Part of a series of lessons that looks at logical fallacies in persuasive text, this resource focuses on circular reasoning. After a brief explanation, pupils examine five examples and then work in groups to craft a dialogue that demonstrates circular reasoning. This could be included as a mini-activity in a persuasive writing unit or in a study of propaganda.

Lesson Planet helps me search from such a large variety of creative and innovative teaching ideas from dedicated teachers. I am always looking for ideas to better teach my students and solicit the help of others in the education field. Many of the lessons guide students from concrete to abstract learning. Keep up the great work!
