What are the differences between Traditional Logic and Informal Logic?

I seem to keep going back and forth on which to use. I'm thinking of doing formal logic next year with my rising 8th grade dd and 7th grade ds. We are working on Fallacy Detective now and hope to get and go thru Teaching Toolbox before next year... if not perhaps we'll do it along side each other.


I know Informal Logic from Cannon Press has recently been updated/revised so going back to older comparisons might not be accurate. Has anyone been able to compare these two?

I have the old version of Logos School's Intro to Logic, but I've never seen the updated edition. Here is a good overview of the differences between TLI and Intro to Logic: http://www.memoriapress.com/forum/showthread.php?t=406


A good rule of thumb that I learned from these boards is that a student who is ready for Algebra I is probably ready for formal logic program too.
