what other classes, books, materials should I be looking at?

She'd like to complete the three year program. She'll have a lot of time to pursue her interests in 11th and 12 grade, so I want to start figuring it out now. 

 

She's curious about philosophy, ethic, possibly debate, logic... any thoughts?

It would be great if there was another live class that offered these subjects. 

 

Thanks!

I’ve been looking at WHA Logic 2. I have the Kreeft book they use, and it’s excellent.

WHA’s Logic 2 includes debates in the second semester as well as philosophy. It sounds like the course might be a good fit. My dd is loving it! It is taught from a Christian perspective so if that isn’t what you are looking for, then you might want to pass.

What does WHA stand for? We’re Muslim. We’ve used a few things over the years that are Christian without problems. If I remember correctly, Art of Arguement and Discovery of Deduction are Christian. We used those.
Is it the kind of thing that probably wouldn’t work?

Hopefully someone else will give you ideas because it sounds like this isn’t a great match for you. Logic 2 is distinctly Christian. The kids are told to bring their Bible to class and it is often used. Discussion board topics are often about applying Scripture to some issue. The class assumes the students are in Christian families. Perhaps my delay in responding will serve as a bump and someone else can point you in a different direction.

Ah, okay. Thanks for the heads up. :)
