The Discovery of Deduction: An Introduction to Formal Logic, Teacher's Edition includes the entire student text, along with answer keys, teaching tips, and sample essays, dialogues, and arguments.
The Discovery of Deduction is geared directly toward students as young as eighth grade, making a subject usually reserved for study in college accessible and relevant to junior–high age, logic stage students. It is intended to emphasize the practical and real-world application of soundly structured, deductive logic. Using methods such as Socratic dialogue, ample discussion, and integration of other subjects, it teaches the ways in which these dialectic students learn best.
An ideal companion to this text is The Art of Argument: An Introduction to the Informal Fallacies. Students will learn to identify all twenty-eight fallacies in advertisements, speeches, and everyday conversation.
