Formal Logic: Whys and Wherefores

Recommended Posts

At our school we have taught two years of logic at least since I began teaching back in 2010. I've taught the first year course (8th grade), which covers categorical logic and informal fallacies, three times and this year I'm teaching the second year course (propositional logic, with a unit on digital logic). Our plan is to combine the two courses into one and teach it in the 9th grade. I'm curious to know how other schools and teachers have taught formal logic in their schools: Do you do it in one year or two, and what is the rationale? Do you teach categorical and propositional, or only one, or neither; and what is the rationale? To what age group do you teach formal logic and why?
