We have worked our way through both Trad Logic I and II. My kids have only put in about what I would consider to be 1/2 credit's worth of time.

Does anybody have an opinion as to whether the two workbooks together constitute 1/2 or 1 hs credit? What if they are combined with The Fallacy Detective? Should I also include another book on logic, or were my kids fast workers?

Thanks!

Each Traditional Logic text is equivalent to one semester of high school logic. (TL I = 1 semester, TL II = 1 semester) We expect them to be used primarily in 9th or 10th grade so older students may move through them quicker. It sounds like your kids did very well.

FYI: Classical Rhetoric with Aristotle is a full year of high school credit and is typically used in 11th or 12th grade.
