**In an effort to maintain full disclosure, we only used Introduction to Logic for 7 days. Therefore, i can’t give a full review of it.**
The Fallacy Detective by Nathaniel Bluedorn & Hans Bluedorn – Price on Amazon $27
It’s a very short book, only 38 lessons, so it wouldn’t work for a complete school year. We only used it for the second semester of the school year. The lessons were fun and engaging. Seriously, my son and i laughed so many times and we just really looked forward to doing a lesson every day. It has some subject matter that might be considered controversial (gun control, drugs, etc.), so that is just something to be aware of.
We loved this book and we will be using it again and again, for all my other children when the time comes for them to study logic.
It is a full school year, 180 days, worth of curriculum. It’s Christian, very Christian. In all honesty it’s just very boring and repetitive. Like i said at the beginning of this review, we only made it 7 days using this curriculum and the reason for that is because it was so boring. It starts out with how God is logical and how all knowledge comes from God and continues to say those things over and over again. Not once in those 7 days we studied, did it tell us some different fallacies and how to detect them. Versus in The Fallacy Detective, in the first 7 days, we learned about; Red Herrings, Special Pleading and Ad Hominem just to name a few.
Those are my thoughts, but i would love to hear your thoughts if you have used either one of these curriculum.
