However, the concepts and Latin vocab are much too complex for Jr. High students. Suggested level should be for 11-12th graders. Preview before purchasing.

She read through it in a short time because she enjoyed it so much. It's a great book for any student with appropriate reading skills, but it's also useful enough to be used in a college class. Excellent book!
indirtTXAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5July 8, 2010indirtTXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleThis is a very thorough curriculum. Though it has some playful examples, it is most serious about teaching the Art of Argument and discernment of an argument. The material is for a very mature jr. higher, but for an average student, it is better taught in high school. Make time to really delve into the concepts and find examples in current issues and conversations to help remember the fallacies. We took longer than a semester with it.
