    Default Missing things from the resources page?

    I noticed that there don't seem to be any logic curricula listed (unless there was a section I missed - sorry!). Offhand I know of Mindbenders, Lollipop Logic, Tin Man Press's books, Logic Safari, and Logic Liftoff... There are others for middle and high school but I'm not sure which are secular.

    Anyway, I thought other people might have noticed other things deserving of being listed.

    Oh, also I noticed that MEP is listed as K-8 but it's actually K-12... or, at least, it's K-9 with GCSE material and an A levels curriculum that's currently being added and developed, so I think in America-speak that's probably easiest to express as "K-12."

    Okay a few more...

    Elemental Science (K-???)
    CPO Science (middle school)
    Inquiry in Action (middle school chemistry - it's free!)
    Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding (K-8)

    Bravewriter (K-12)
    Wordly Wise (1-???)
    Stack the Deck Writing

    Also, so many people use Evan-Moor for various things - Daily Geography, 6 Trait Daily Writing, etc. that it seems like it should be listed somewhere...

    Great feedback, Farrar! We'll work on examining if we need further curriculum categories and checking on adding each of your suggestions. Thanks!!

    Farrar - - I THINK I got most or all of the additional curriculum resources listed. Thanks again for those!! The admins are pow-wowing about the possibility of new curriculum categories...we should have a decision on that before too long.

    Farrar,
    We've decided not to include a separate logic/critical thinking category just yet, but we WILL get some of these resources you've shared added in to the electives category. Thanks again for the great feedback and suggestions...

    Oh, could we also have a place for world religions? that questions has come up at least 4 times in the past year (ok, that doesnt sound like a lot lol) - but non-xtian-based religions curriculum or books. I mean, under extra-curriculars or whatever

    Yeah, I sort of thought that extra-curriculars would be a fine place for logic... World religion could go under social studies though maybe?
