    Any suggestions to prepare my middle schooler for Traditional Logic?

    Are there any programs that I can use to particularly prepare my very non-logical middle schooler for logic? We've been doing the A series of Mind Benders, but as you progress through the levels it seems like the same stuff over and over, just harder. Is there a book or workbook that would do a better job than others covering the goal of preparing her brain?

    Fallacy Detective and Thinking Toolbox

    These are both by the Bluedorns and are excellent for teaching how to spot faulty logic. We do them together as a read aloud, and my younger children and have learned so much.
    These are not puzzles and would be a nice change of pace because it sounds like you (or your children or both) are bored with what you've been doing, They do have exercises, and the answers are in the back of the books.
    The Bluedorns have other suggestions on their website for logic also.

    Hope this helps

      Thank you

      That was just the type of suggestion I was looking for.
