Review of The Critical Thinking Co. Now it is run by his son, Michael Baker and they have grown to over products.
I was undecided regarding personal goals for our children or which method of homeschooling was best. We wanted them to read well, so that they might take in the Word of God; write well, so that they could communicate what the Lord was speaking to them; and think well, in order to analyze the world in which they live and serve the Lord righteously.
Through the medium of math, vocabulary, reading, writing, science, and more, students are taught to analyze information and gain a deeper understanding of the world in which they live.
A page paperback workbook, Book 1 leads students through a series of detective cases challenging them to analyze data and develop observation skills. Designed for grades four through twelve, students will find each case fun to solve.
If we teach children to think, their knowledge is limitless. Little Man is eleven now; the perfect age to ensure those critical thinking skills are being formed and solidified.
The thin paperback had an appealing cover which attracted his attention and increased his interest in the book. Based on the details of the mystery and the information given, our son needed to determine which suspects were innocent and which was the guilty party.
My goal was to incorporate one to two lessons per day into our routine, completing a minimum of four cases per week over the course of several weeks.
During our first lesson, I worked closely with my son to ensure he understood what was being asked of him. I offered assistance if needed, and helped him with writing down his thoughts.
After a few cases, we chose to work through occasional cases verbally. Afterwards we would check the answer sheet included in the back of the book and discover if he was correct. Our initial lessons took approximately fifteen to twenty minutes, provided my son stayed on task.
The remainder of our lessons around ten minutes in length. The curriculum was well laid out, with fun graphics of each suspect. The overall format was organized, methodical, and helpful. While my son was able to solve most of the mysteries without difficulty, we did find a few of the cases harder to solve than others mostly due to a miscommunication in vocabulary.
This frustrated my son at first, however it proved to be a good lesson in understanding proper communication and learning to look at words carefully to find double meaning.
