Product Description

Roman Roads Classroom Logic is a full year of instruction. The course is divided into two semesters:  Introductory Logic: The Fundamentals of Thinking Well, and Intermediate Logic: Mastering Propositional Arguments. Using the flipped classroom model, for each lesson students will read the text and watch the video, then work on the exercise. They will then meet for online recitations weekly with Jonathan Roberts, where together they will solidify their understanding of the concept. As a complete course in reasoning well, Introductory Logic teaches students how to define terms, make accurate statements, construct valid arguments, and detect fallacies, while Intermediate Logic teaches students how to analyze, develop, and prove powerful propositional arguments.

 

WHAT IS A “FLIPPED CLASSROOM”?
A “flipped classroom” is one in which the lecture typically given in class is watched at home, and the time normally spent doing homework occurs live in class. In other words, you watch the recorded lecture on your own, followed by answering questions. You then interact with the teacher and other students online going over the lesson, followed by previewing the next lesson.

How this looks will differ somewhat by subject. For literature (Old Western Culture), this means an Oxford style “recitation,” or small group discussion once per week. For Logic this will mean students watch the video lessons on their own, and then meet to go over the lesson 3 times per week. Since this is an online school, these meetings happen live via video conference.
