I am hoping to expand our horizons by introducing my 7th grader, at least, maybe others, to a logical approach to arguements and thinking. I have a toddler needing lots of help right now so I don't have a lot of intensive time to spend, but any ideas from any of you??

I like using Fallacy Detective and Thinking Toolbox for my 7th and 8th graders. It's a pretty good introduction to arguments and just plain clear thinking and communicating in general.
