Sweet Home Alabama Posted January 21, 2011 Share Posted January 21, 2011 Ladies, we've never studied logic before, and I'm trying to work it into my dd's 8th grade year. I'm thinking of using Fallacy Detective and Thinking Toolbox in 8th possibly followed by Introductory Logic 4th edition (Wilson and Nance) in 9th. (I'm REALLY unsure about all of this....) I have a few questions: I've been tentatively planning on using MFW high school in 9th. They schedule FD and TT which is worth .5 credits. If dd uses FD and TT in 8th, can she still earn the .5 credit? What kind of work is equivalent to this credit? Also, IF we use Introductory Logic (with MFW) in place of FD and TT, what kind of work and credit can I expect with these? At first glance, I liked the way Introductory Logic looked. It looked like it would be applicable to practical schoolwork, and it looked a bit more interesting compared to some other curricula I looked at. If you've used this, would you tell me what you liked/disliked about it? Would you recommend the DVD or not? I'm trying to work toward SWB's recommendation to outline and write examples for A Rulebook for Argument... (working from logic toward rhetoric). I'd love to know if my logic sequence working up to this book is..... um.... logical?:lol: Just to recap: 8th: Fallacy Detective/ Thinking Toolbox 9th: Introductory Logic/ A Rulebook for Argument Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
