Introductory Logic (Grades 7-12)
Time & Location
About the Event
In Introductory Logic, you’ll learn how to think well by developing these rock-solid fundamentals:
• How to form and interpret statements, the building blocks of logical thought,
• How to compose valid syllogisms, and expose the invalid fakes using counterexamples,
• How to analyze arguments in normal English,
• How to identify and deflect informal fallacies (one of the most instantly applicable parts of logic),
• And much more.
Anybody can do Introductory Logic, no matter where they’re learning. Brand new, clean, easy-to-read layout, lots of margin notes for key points and further study, a step-by-step modern method, and exercises for every lesson (plus review questions and additional exercises for every unit make Introductory Logic the perfect choice for establishing an in-your-bones knowledge of the fundamentals of thinking well.”

We will be working through Introductory Logic: The Fundamentals of Thinking Well for this class. While this text is advertised as a Grade 7 level homeschool textbook, it will present a challenge to all students who participate. Students will be expected to complete readings and exercises outside of class time.

Do face coverings need to be worn in places of worship? (Worldview Class)
“Places of worship would be included in the bylaw definition of a public premise, as they are enclosed buildings that members of the public have access to. Those attending places of worship are permitted to temporarily remove their face covering to provide or receive service, such as to receive communion.
However, if a place of worship closes its doors to the public for a private event (for example a wedding), it is not a public premises during the event and therefore attendants will not have to wear face coverings.”
