Guest BookShopLady Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 We used MP Intro Logic I + Thinking Toolbox last year with high school homeschool co-op kids in a once a week class. This year we want to continue this track with the next academic step in Logic; however, we have a mom who refuses to participate in such a BORING, DRY, and DIFFICULT curriculum (MP Intro II). I have been researching (including buying one of each): MP Intro I-II, Material Logic, Rhetoric Classical Academy Press (CAP) Art of Argument, Argument Builder, Discovery of Deduction, Art of Argument DVDs Nance's Traditional Logic I-II Bluedorn's Fallacy Detective, Thinking Toolbox, Logic in 100 Minutes. 3/10 students are interested in truly academic structure 2/10 students think Logic is "fun" after doing MP Intro I + Toolbox 2/10 students wish they were up to more, but will struggle with the next step 3/10 students took the class because they had to OK! The big question!! WHAT curriculum should I use for this class??? Should I hold to the track and pursue MP + Fallacy Detective? Should I jump ship for a curriculum that is more "fun," but is actually a step back for most of the class like CAP (and that is a step back, right)? I know I can't please everyone, so do I reach for the stars and encourage the class to go for gold with academic MP Logic? Is there something better? What about using MP Intro II with Art of Argument DVDs? These are by far the BEST DVDs I have seen yet! Ack! I don't know what to do! ~Curriculum Junkie & Homeschool Mom of 3 classically trained independent high schoolers Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
