I just have a basic question about Logic. I think I have been completely asleep at the wheel regarding it. My dd is a 9th grader this fall and is starting debate in a club. Tonight I was asked what Logic program she has done. My reponse, "Err, uhm, none, I guess." My friend was shocked because she knew I was doing classical education and she told me logic is core to the teaching of classical.
How did I miss this? I've been using TOG for 5 years and have had my children dabble in puzzle and brain-teaser books "when they had time", but didn't even realize there was such thing as formal Logic curriculum. Ugh - I am embarrassed.
I guess my question is, if Logic is considered core teaching in classical education, why doesn't TOG have a week-by-week plan for it just like literature, history, fine arts & worldview? I know I would not have missed it if it was listed on the "yellow bordered sheets"/week plans. Or is taking a Logic class considered as optional as Latin with classical education?
I'm embarrassed to be asking such a basic, foundational question especially since I've used TOG for 5 years.
Thanks in advance for sharing any perspectives with me, and/or where in the binders I've missed the Logic sections.
