starting logic in 7th grade

Depends on what type of logic you want to do.


Pre-logic skills would be things like Mindbenders or Lollipop logic or Critical Thinking books. We started off with Mindbenders and my kids liked them.


Informal Logic: We are doing Fallacy Detective now and hope to get to Thinking Toolbox. Another option would be Art of Argument. My kids (grades 6 & 7) find Fallacy Detective fun.


Formal Logic: I don't see that getting done within 10 minutes a day, nor will it be a fun into to logic.

I want to do logic for all the reasons laid out in TWTM.


However, I want a secular program. And I'm afraid of a very time-consuming program, because I'm pulling my 12 year old through Homer B with my teeth.


What should I look at? Most of the recommended programs are Christian in nature.

We are secular (um, very secular) and Fallacy Detective and Thinking Toolbox are definitely useable. Sometimes something comes up which has a Christian slant but it is fuel for discussion...being logic.

Art of Arguement is very useable by us secular folk..I plan to do that next.
