a good fit for a 7th grader
My daughter really enjoys this book

Easy to use
We used this as part of my daughter's half credit Informal Logic course. The lessons are short and easy to understand. The text is entertaining with practical application examples for most lessons. The short answer work for each lesson was not overwhelming. The text is layed out well, with plenty of aids to help a high schooler determine what points are important to study for the tests.
I would recommend this curriculum.

Topics too mature for upper elementary grades
After reading the lessons of the first unit, I decided that many of the sample arguments, which are tied directly to the lessons, were too mature for my upper elementary grade students. Some of the topics introduced included abortion, criticism of past presidents, and Sigmund Freud's proposal that people without positive relationships with their own fathers "wish for and imagine a God who is a great, cosmic father figure who offers the things they missed in their relationships with their own fathers." (p 47 of The Art of Argument)

If using with multiple students does each one need his own workbook?
A shopper on Aug 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It is consumable, and it does clearly state that is is not reproducible. Having said that, the pages for the student to write in answers only have a few questions on them. If money is tight, you could probably get away with just having each student answer the questions on a separate sheet of paper.
Do you need the teacher manual or is this something that can be done as just a workbook?
User on Aug 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You definitely need the teacher's manual b/c it has all the answers and explanation to the answers for the student text.
