Description

The authors have divided the most common fallacies and propaganda techniques into 36 easy-to-understand lessons. It is self-teaching, meaning no other resources are needed and students can work through it independently, but it is enjoyable for children and parents to use together - a great way to encourage deep discussions. By using short chapters, clear examples, a touch of humor, and interesting exercises, even reluctant scholars will enjoy learning how to identify fallacies. The author's answers are at the back of the book as well as a Fallacy Detective game in which players make up their own fallacies. Presented from a decidedly Christian perspective, with examples that concern conservative families, like abortion and politics, the authors recommend the book for ages 13 and up. The practice and terminology learned in this book will lay a solid foundation for all other logic study. This book is featured in Cathy Duffy's 100 Top Picks for Home Education.
