  4. The Basics of Critical Thinking - The Critical Thinking Company

    The Basics of Critical Thinking - The Critical Thinking Company

    SKU: 12997

    $22.99

    This engaging, colorful 152-page book teaches the most important critical thinking concepts every student should know.

    Many workbooks claim to teach or develop critical thinking skills, but most of these products never define critical thinking or try to teach the meaning to students.

    This book defines and teaches critical thinking in a way all students can understand through simple explanations, diagrams, and short, engaging activities.

    In addition to being a course in critical thinking, the activities in this book can be used to supplement lessons in all subjects.

    Although this book teaches common argument forms, its primary focus is identifying and evaluating evidence-the very basis of critical thinking.

    Most propaganda, advertising schemes, legal trickery, and bad science are not the result of complex arguments; they are the result of half-truths and simple arguments.

    Students who successfully complete this book will have a fundamental set of critical thinking skills they can use their entire lives.

    Recommended for grades 4 and up.

  23. Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind: Core Instructor Text by Susan Wise-Bauer

    Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind: Core Instructor Text by Susan Wise-Bauer

    SKU: 7946

    $34.95

    Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind takes students from basic definitions (“A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea”) through advanced sentence structure and analysis—all the grammar skills needed to write and speak with eloquence and confidence. This innovative program combines the three essential elements of language learning: understanding and memorizing rules (prescriptive teaching), repeated exposure to examples of how those rules are used (descriptive instruction), and practice using those rules in exercises and in writing (practical experience). Each year, parents and teachers go through the dialogue, rules, and examples in the Core Instructor Text; students follow along in the Student Workbook. This repetition solidifies the concepts, definitions, and examples in the student’s mind. The Core Instructor Text provides not only rules and examples, but scripted dialogue that makes it possible for any parent or teacher to use the program effectively, along with instructor notes that thoroughly explain ambiguities and difficulties.

    • Scripted lessons make it possible for any parent or teacher to use the program effectively. Step-by-step instruction takes students from the most basic concepts through advanced grammatical concepts such as modal and hortative verbs and multiple functions of noun clauses.
    • Extensive diagramming exercises reinforce the rules and help technical and visual learners to understand and use the English language effectively. All diagrams are thoroughly explained to the instructor/parent.
    • Text for examples and exercises are drawn from great works of literature, as well as from well-written nonfiction texts in science, mathematics, and the social sciences.
    • Regular review is built into each year of work.
    • Core text is designed to be used effectively with students from fifth grade through high school, regardless of background.
    • The program is easily customizable to each student’s strengths and weaknesses
