Critical Thinking: Comprehension
Introduction to Formal Logic
Before embarking on a Ã¢ÂÂformalÃ¢ÂÂ logic course, my husband and I decided it would be best to give our fifth grader an Ã¢ÂÂintroduction to logic.Ã¢ÂÂ While doing an internet search, I came across Ã¢ÂÂThe Critical Thinking SeriesÃ¢ÂÂ by Remedia Publications.
Ã¢ÂÂThe Critical Thinking SeriesÃ¢ÂÂ is based on BloomÃ¢ÂÂs Taxonomy of thinking skills. The activities begin at a simple, concrete level and as the studentÃ¢ÂÂs abilities increase, more abstract and complex activities are introduced. The series consist of sixteen work texts: Analogies, Classification, Absurdities, Similarities and Differences, Sequence, Drawing Solutions, Using Logic, Finding Facts, Following Directions, Relying on Reason, Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis and Evaluation. Each work text is consumable and includes the answer key.
Ã¢ÂÂThe Critical Thinking SeriesÃ¢ÂÂ will give your student a firm foundation to think logically while preparing them for Ã¢ÂÂformalÃ¢ÂÂ logic. I would recommend following this series with Ã¢ÂÂCritical Thinking Book 1 and Book 2Ã¢ÂÂ by Anita Harnadek.
