Every person should have a course in logic at some point. It is important for children to be prepared to argue logically, defend their positions, and spot fallacies. The only thing more frustrating than knowing your opponent is wrong is to have to combat a well-constructed, logical argument when you are unable. There is no real defense against sound logic and thinking. Many logic books are written at too high a level for younger students to comprehend. Canon Press says this course is written for primary and secondary students. Cathy Duffy, however, says the content is beyond typical high-school-level material. I have looked through this book and found it simpler to use and understand than the course I had in high school. I would hope that my 12 year olds could handle it without much difficulty. It is a complete and fairly rigorous course, and is from a Christian perspective. The course builds from basic to more complex, giving students the tools they need, with good examples along the way. Exercises teach logical statements, truth and validity, universals and particulars, categorized relationships, syllogism, logical fallacy, symbolic logic, and much more. The newest version of the course includes 36 lessons (with 39 consumable exercises). Definitions of important terms, key points, and caution signs regarding common errors are set apart in the margins of the text. The Student Text begins with a section on defining terms, which lays the foundation for the lessons that follow. The book has a new cover, perfect binding, and has perforated exercise pages for easy removal. The Teacher Edition includes both full-year and semester lesson schedules; answers to all exercises, review exercises, quizzes and tests; the entire content of the Student Text; and detailed daily lesson plans with teacher's notes. The DVD Set includes lessons from Jim Nance from Logos School, who introduces 20 lessons that coordinate with the textbook. Jim has taught logic for years and co-authored the book, so his instruction is helpful. The Homeschool Package contains the Student Text, Teacher Edition, Test & Quiz Packet, and DVD Set. Make Introductory Logic one of their required courses and arm them for battle!

We have tried other logic programs, that, strangely, didn't seem to present the information is a very logical, straightforward way. Here's hoping this program is different!

Which edition is included in the homeschool bundle?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: All items in the homeschool bundle are the 5th Edition.
Does this set contain the newest version of the DVD? 2019 with instructor Brian Kohl?
A shopper on May 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It looks like it does. My DVDs have a black square at the top with the words “video course.” Also, James Nance’s name appears along the bottom, as he is the one who teaches the video course. The newer one has the color that corresponded with the student book. Red for intro and purple for intermediate. You can find more info on the back image of the DVDs and at their home site.
Does this contain sectarian content?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is absolutely written with a Christian worldview.
I purchased this set but it didn't include the answers to the tests & quizzes! Are they available?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The answers to all the quizzes, tests, and exams are in the Teacher Edition.
How necessary are the DVDs if I am doing the course with him? Can he read the same information in the text as in the video lecture?
Tavianna on Aug 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I was a Classical Conversations Challenge B Director last year. Students can read the same info in the text, but the DVDs are very helpful. The author does more explaining in the DVDs and he works sample problems. I found that most of my students greatly benefited from the DVDs.
Is this the 5th edition?
User on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is the 5th edition. We bought ours in 09/2015, so I'm not sure if they've come out with a new edition since then.
Is this the set that was updated in 2014? Thank you!
A shopper on Jul 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes this is the current version, in use at Classical Convervsations.
