A New Year in Logic

This morning I had my first class with my new online Logic students. I am teaching six junior high and high school age students in Class A, with even more auditors joining us on the side. We will be meeting twice a week through Introductory Logic, using Zoom software, which appears to work very well for the larger class size.

I teach using the “flipped classroom” model. The students read the lesson in the text and watch me lecture through the lesson on the video (which allows them to rewind and review), then they work on the exercise for that lesson. Having done that, we all meet together online live, M/Th or T/F morning, where we discuss the assignment, answer any questions, correct any misconceptions, and generally verify that everyone is understanding the material. Then I preview the next lesson and they are on their way.

I encourage you to check out all of the online classes available through Roman Roads Media: Logic, Rhetoric, Economics, Good Books, Poetry, Old Western Culture, and American History.
