Clearance: Logic

Everyone needs to know how to recognize common fallacies, and so we recommend the following as a minimum:

  • Begin with Fallacy Detective after you finish off your spelling program.  (Why spelling?  Well...a busy mom can only do so much, and logic is just something that can take the place, timewise, of spelling around 7th or 8th grade.)  Twice a week ask the student to read a chapter in the book.  He then hands you the book and you ask him the questions in the back.  It takes all of 15 minutes from start to finish and you'll finish it in a semester.
  • The next semester, do Thinking Toolbox in the same way.
  • The next school year, do Introductory Logic.  We previewed a number of logic programs and found that, for a mom without any formal background in the subject material, this one is the easiest to teach.  If you can swing buying the DVDs, it's really a matter of grading their pages.
  • If you choose to count logic as a high school elective, all three TOGETHER can count as an introductory logic course, although you would want to finish the two books in one semester instead of two.  We personally didn't give this as a credit because we consider this much of logic to be "life skills."
  • If you choose to continue your logic studies, you'll proceed with Intermediate Logic, which is also available through Bookshelf Central.
