My children attend public high schools here in Williamson County.
My wife and I are seriously considering moving the youngest into a Classical School next year -- where they teach the old "trivium" of grammar, rhetoric, and logic.
We've decided to make a "dramatic" family change. TV is GONE for the next 3 months while we spend one evening a week -- are you ready for this -- studying LOGIC as a family. My wife is not sure it will work, but I think it will.
We will be using Doug Wilson's Introduction to Logic. Anyone have any ideas ?
Thinking of a 2 hour session on Wednesday nights.
15 minutes of "MindBenders" , followed by an hour of one of the 36 lessons with exercises in Wilson's book followed by 45 minutes of .... well not sure, maybe reading the classics ? The Bible ? De Toqueville's Democracy in America ?
That was six years ago.
How did it work out?
