Many of us (sadly) were not trained in logic. Still, we need not despair, for we have learned something about how to reason well by other means, and we can quickly learn more and fill in the gaps. Our programs help you to learn right along with students, by providing you with great teachers via DVD and by offering you books that are clear, incremental, and easy to follow. Our light sense of humor laces through each book and video (reasoning gone wrong can be quite funny), and you will find generous illustrations, diagrams, and real-world examples that focus interest and attention. Our three programs are easy to use, relevant to all of life, and impart strength; they are like a three-stranded cord that together reinforce one another and are remarkably strong.

—The Art of Argument introduces students to 28 logical fallacies (Informal Logic)

—The Discovery of Deduction explores the structure of reasoning to help students understand what makes an argument sound and valid (Formal Logic)

—The Argument Builder helps students to build a sound argument that is also persuasive (Logic/Pre-Rhetoric)

These three studies together offer solid logical training that will strengthen a student in any academic discipline, but also equip him/her for sharp thinking, assessment, writing, and speaking in all areas of life! ***Try the first five chapters of any book for free; download from our website!***

I do not know about you, but one of the goal in my homeschooling is to raise kids that think critically. I am not interested in just feeding my boys knowledge. I want them to interact with whatever they learn, make it their own, and be able to argue or defend truth and what is right, in a very logical way. So, our homeschool curriculum line up includes logic curriculum.

From a young age you can challenge your kids to think by encouraging them, not to challenge you or authority, but to be curious about why things are the way they are. Questions are always a good thing because we are made to be inquisitive. As a parent I’ve always sought to answer as best as I could, given their maturity or level. As they grew older I started including actual logic curriculum to help and assist me in the task of developing their logical and critical skills.

Today I would like to share with you some of my favorite logic curriculum.
