  1. Looking into logic curriculum for next year and my key need is budget friendly. Are the dvds necessary for Memoria Press’ Introductory Logic (and the following books)? Could we do the curriculum without the dvds?
  2. Online classes, groups, summer anything? She cannot take part in competitions in the fall. Best if affordable.
  3. Does anyone know of lesson plans to go along with these two books to flesh them out and make a high school class out of them? I'm not looking for alternatives to these books because I already own these and the online logic class I was going to have her take fell through, so I'm trying to scramble and put something together with what is on my shelves. TIA
  4. My son, 10th grade, is currently in Traditional Logic 1 w/MPA. Looking at Memoria Press Academy's schedule for next year, there is only one unattractive fall option for TLII (time-wise) and several good options for spring. But, Material Logic has a good time offer for the fall. It's not a big deal about taking ML in-between TLI and TLII, is there? Thanks, Rachel
  5. I am planning for 5th grade History and would appreciate your thoughts regarding sourcing books for the extra reading. My daughter will be studying history with her Uncle so she will need to have all the books with her to take to his house. The plan at the moment is to have a quick look at the pages to be covered in the week ahead (we will be using Usborne EWH as the spine) and borrow books on the topics she thinks she may be interested in studying further. In addition to this I'm going to buy a second hand encyclopedia set and we have the SOTW books which she absolutely loves. This i
  6. We have been using Memoria Press' middle school American History with my 7th grader: it uses Guerber's American History book and a student workbook/manual, and I would like to try moving us to a more WTM-style history. This child can do 2-level outlines and has experience writing WTM-style summaries, though those skills are a few months worth of rusty. I have Davidson's A Little History of the US and my child much prefers it to the Guerber. Other resources I have available include the DK's "Children's Encyclopedia of American History", Critical Thinking Company's US History Detective 1,
  7. I think I have decided upon a Traditional Logic 1 online course this coming fall. There are two locations I am looking at: Memoria Press(MP) and Homeschool Connections (HC). My questions are: 1) Has anyone had experience at MP with either of these instructors and can you please share? Thomas Achord Stephen Wolfe 2) At HC, Phillip Campbell is teaching the fall sem. of TL 1 (don't know yet about TL 2 in spring). I've read positive things about him here. My only issue is that we are not Catholic (but the cost is less, which is an incentive). Any opinions on him or how much Catholic
  8. Hi. I'm Kris Langman, author of the Logic to the Rescue series. I'm currently writing the fourth book in the series and I'm taking suggestions for topics to cover, both in this book and in the rest of the books in the series. (I'm planning six to seven books in total). For example, a reader asked me to include some info about the Linnean system of classification, so I added info about this to the the third book, The Bard of Biology. Suggestions can be about logic, math, physics, chemistry, and biology. I'll try to include as many suggestions as possible as long as they work with th
  9. I'm planning on using this next year for my 5th-grade DD along with the Logic to the Rescue series. How have you all used it? Do you assign a certain number of pages to read and do some flashcards? Discussion? I won't have much time to do any discussion because of the number of children I'm teaching. Any suggestions?
  10. This year my boys are 9 (grade 4) and 11 (grade 5). We are doing the Prufrock Press logic books plus I am supplementing with some other puzzle books for my oldest. We do a lot of subjects together so I had given some thought to doing informal logic together as well, but I am concerned that my youngest (who will be 5th grade next fall) will be too young for it. His brother is only a grade higher but 21 months older and that can make a real difference sometimes. What I own so far and *could* use: The Thinking Toolbox The Fallacy Detective Art of Argument plus two workbooks I cou
  11. Did you like it? I see two versions on Amazon, a 2010 edition, and one from 1992. I can get the older much cheaper. Are they like workbooks that students write in? Does anyone know if there is a benefit (worth $10 more) to getting the newer edition, or if there is much change between the two editions? Thank you!
  12. I'm preparing for my oldest boy's entrance into the logic stage and wondering what to use for logic. I read TWTM to brush up on SWB's recommendations, and she recommends using some Critical Thinking Press workbooks for grades 5-6 as sort of pre-logic exercises. Did anyone use those, and how did you like them? Are they worth the money? I've also been looking at Reading and Reasoning, which I saw at CAP's site. Is this just busy work, or would it be like the Critical Thinking materials? Would it be too much work on language if I used Reading and Reasoning at the same time as a writing curric
  13. Since Discovery of Deduction by CAP is an intro to formal logic, has anyone used Traditional Logic 2 AFTER DoD? I haven't compared the ToC, yet; though I don't know if I could tell that way, so hopefully some ono can advise here! Secondly, if a family would like both the langage-based logic AND the Math-based logic in high school, would this seqence be sensible? First: Fallacy Det/Thinking Toolbox Then: AofA OR Introductory Logic by Nance Next: Intermediate Logic by Nance Next: Discovery of Deduction OR Traditional Logic 1 Next: Traditional Logic 2 (even if they used DoD)
  14. Hi folks, I am starting to plan for next year. My oldest will be in 6th grade. I looked through WTM in the logic chapter, and it looks like SWB recommends using "Critical Thinking" Books 1 & 2 by The Critical Thinking Company. I found a used copy from 1998 on Amazon (only Book 1) and a 2002 Book 1 and a 2005 Book 2 on Rainbow Resource, but when I went to the website for The Critical Thinking Company, I couldn't find those titles anywhere. Are they out of print? Do people still use them, or is there a different recommendation? We used "Building Thinking Skills" this past year. I
  15. I'd like to do some logic puzzles and critical thinking activities with my 4th and 5th graders next school year--for fun, not as a heavy academic pursuit. Sort of as prep for more formal study during middle school. Any ideas? Workbooks? Websites? Games?
  16. Apologies in advance for what may be a long post. Our son has had a rough few years - both with health issues (which are mainly sorted) and a disjointed education of school-homeschool-boarding school-homeschool. We are now in a position to take stock, plan and really take a big picture look at what we want his learning to achieve in the next few years. He is very asynchronous both in his learning - some subjects he is way ahead of his peers in school, some subjects a bit behind - and in things like comphrehension and attitude - at times he 'gets' stuff some adults don't get, at other times h
  17. Okay, so I'll just say it like it is - we don't like science curriculum, at least none that we've tried up until now. The farther along we get in this homeschooling adventure, the more I'm drawn to unschooling / interest led when it comes to science. Okay, and for history somewhat, too. :) But back to science - my oldest will be in 7th grade next year, so I'm just wondering what is enough but thorough at that point? Others who are drawn to interest led for science - what have you done at this point (middle school)? If you have kids separated by 3 grade levels, do you still try t
  18. Can someone please help me understand what doing well vs. poorly on the NACLO (North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad) means? Here's why I'm confused: Two of my kids are very into logic and/or linguistics. They have spent meaningful time on the NACLO practice puzzles and enjoyed them. They wanted to take the NACLO. The other two had minimal interest, did no preparation, and just tagged along and took it "because why not". You know what happens next, right? The highest scoring kids in my family (by a lot!) were the no-interest, no prep kids. The two who practiced
  19. We will be finishing Fallacy Detective and Thinking Toolbox this year for 8th grade. When I started looking for 9th grade logic curriculum I learned a few things: 1) what we are studying now is informal logic and now need to do formal logic 2) two types of formal logic are traditional and modern 3) traditional logic sees logic as a language 4) modern logic sees logic as mathematics I like the idea of logic as a language, western thought as it’s origins, and based on Christian thought. I know that Memoria Press fits the bill but, oh my is it hard to follow…and I have a Bachelor
  20. So I'm trying to come up with an introductory chemistry and physics program for my 6th grade son. My idea is for it to be a good hands-on year but with enough information to pull him into the topic, with either living books or videos or something. I thought about doing one semester each, but that's not set in stone. I also thought about doing the year in trimesters and doing chemistry for the first one, physics for the second and a unit on using the microscope for the third. I may just be trying to pack too much stuff in, though. For Chemistry, I thought about using The Elements b
  21. I'm planning RSO Level 2 Biology for next year ... anyone used this? advice? great resources to add? I'll toss things I plan to supplement with &c onto the thread as I figure it out. TIA!! SUPPLEMENTAL RESOURCES PLAN: Magic of Reality (Dawkins) with app Attenborough's Life DVD series (again! now with N. tagging along) Prehistoric Park DVD (maybe)
  22. I'm looking into Material Logic for my student next year. We've done Fallacy Detective, Thinking Toolbox, Intro to Logic (Nance) and Intermediate Logic (Nance). When we did Intermediate Logic this year, I told my daughter that she will be adequately prepared for Geometry next year! There were a lot of proof like problems to work through, using symbols. In looking at the samples on-line, it seems that Material Logic is equivalent to Intermediate Logic but instead of symbols (if P then Q), there is actual "material" or content to P and Q. For example: If all men are mortal, Socra
  23. Can anyone tell me how Art of Argument compares with The Fallacy Detective and The Thinking Toolbox? My 6th grade dd has completed both of the Bluedorn books this year and loved them. I was wondering if we should give Art of Argument a try for next year. What are some other logic options for middle school?
  24. Do you use any critical thinking or logic curriculum with you early elementary children? If so, what do you use and can you give a short review? Thanks in advance. Crystal
  25. I'm trying to round out my resources for history next year, and would really appreciate suggestions, comments, ideas. This will be for a sensitive 10 yo boy who reads well and doesn't particularly like history but does like science. He's more-or-less done a WTMish grammar history cycle, with spottiest coverage for ancients and medieval history, and reads well. My goals are to: * provide rich food for thought and ideas (sort of CM-ish that way), * give a coherent sense of the ancient world and how it followed from prehistory and set the stage for the history that follows * provide
