School of Logic
The Logic Stage marks the shift from trusting authority figures implicitly to instead beginning to question these assumptions. Middle school children have the natural tendency to question and debate what they are taught. We should love that God has made them this way, because it’s a key part of them developing into fully-functioning adults with their own views and opinions. Our teachers nurture this tendency through guided conversation to help students use reasoned thinking to arrive at sound conclusions. This formative opportunity allows them to evaluate their own arguments before engaging in discussion with differing points of view.
