What is the truth? What is an opinion? What is a lie? There
is no student of any age or experience who can afford to not
understand these concepts, and the differences between them!
This is a brief and simple course for any student age nine
and up. Six lessons, somewhere between two-ten hours
of work depending on the student.
The methods generally used to educate children today involve
a great deal of enforcement of information. Texts studied
and lessons delivered are to be taken literally, and the
information supplied is never to be questioned. A student
taught this way is never allowed to evaluate or reject
information, a valuable set of survival skills LOST! The
ability to look at something that one is told is a fact, and
to determine whether or not it actually is, is an
indispensible life skill. Needless to say, it is also an
indispensible tool when studying.
This very simple course assists the student to spot truths,
falsehoods, and opinions, and to differentiate between them.
It is an invaluable, required precursor to their history and
science studies, allowing them to really evaluate and reject
"information" that really may not be
“information”. For many students, while doing this
course they may be asked to think for themselves and
determine the value of information to them, for the first
time in their lives!
This course should be done after our free course,
How To Do Connect The Thoughts,
and before either Upper or Lower School
How To Do Research.
This course requires no additional materials, except access
to a few books, newspapers and the internet and TV. Our
best-seller, and for good reason!

In today's society our children receive so many
"mixed" messages that they are often left confused
about which side to believe. Information, Right or Wrong
teaches students how to evaluate information based on past
experience and their personal belief system to determine
which information is worthy of further investigation and
what should simply be ignored.

Doing Connect the Thoughts courses have been a Godsend for
my daugther - I'm finally seeing her start
"owning" her education, and she's enjoying working
through the courses and knowing that what SHE thinks about
what she's learning is IMPORTANT, not just what someone else
thinks she needs to learn.
Steve (the author) is a great support for the
curriculum and genuinely cares about each students' success
with the program he has written. I would HIGHLY recommend
this program, especially for those with teens who are
feeling like homeschooling is just another excuse for Mom to
boss them around... this gives them complete ownership of
their own education, even referring to the responsiblity of
getting educated as their "job". Once the student
feels that ownership, they are encouraged to dive DEEP into
their studies, wthout Mom nagging.
It's great! CTT has saved our homeschool - and our
mother/daugther relationship! Thanks Steve!!!

I have 2 children, a boy 14 and a girl 9. We used CTT
Creative Writing 1 recently and they both enjoyed it. My 9
yo especially loved it and her writing has improved
tremendously. She is actually writing for a change and with
a smile on her face! She loves it. My 14 year old's writing
has really grown through this course. I've been truly
amazed. Thank you for a great course!

CTT Information - Right or Wrong is a course that teaches
the students to think for themselves and to evaluate the
information as to fact or opinion. This course is complete
and constructive - the children are taught to manage and
indeed run their own education and to be a proactive
participant in their journey. I am thrilled to be seeing
progress with my own girls as they begin to take charge of
their work. I would unhesitantly recommend this course!

We used the Right or Wrong program and highly recommend it.
We are presently using the Manners one and will begin the
American Citizenship one soon. Everyone should do this one!
*Ü* The courses teach the way I attempt to: using the
children's thoughts and opinions rather than true/false,
right/wrong, or "seeking anyone's approval, but their

We started Connect the Thoughts several years ago when
CurrClick offered the Spelling course as the free Monday
give-away. I was immediately impressed with the brilliance
of the author, Steven Horwich, as he recommended exactly
what we were already doing.
When we needed some Creative Writing assistance it was
easy to turn to Connect the Thoughts for aid. My daughter,
then 9, flat out refused to attempt any of the multiple
creative writing aids we had purchased. All of the courses
varied in price, cuteness, length, reviews, and
recommendations. The only thing they had in common was my
daughter’s resistance to anything they offered.
The Connect the Thoughts Creative Writing turned her
around and did so quickly. She went from not wanting to put
anything on paper to asking me how to write on the computer
so she could save the book she planned to author. She became
proud of her writing.
During her first Connect the Thoughts year our
daughter entered and placed Third in the Georgia Public
TV’s Reading Rainbow contest. She hasn’t stopped
writing, yet. After reading the How to Do Connect the
Thoughts Course, my daughter decided she wanted to try a few
of their offerings.
We started with Manners, Science and History. She
became excited about learning in a way that we had not seen
before. Giving her control over how fast and how in-depth
she studied changed everything for her. She started
notebooks for her courses and would study a subject for
hours spending time at our local library and at the home
computer. She would have discussions with her friends about
the things she was studying and seek their opinions. She
would chat, daily, with her father and I about things she
We are a Connect the Thoughts family, now. We use
Saxon for Math and Grammar and Connect the Thoughts for
everything else. I converted my loyalties after hearing my
daughter quote Connect the Thoughts during a play date. We
had just finished the Information, Right or Wrong course.
The course is one of the best and I believe it should be
required for all students. It is a course that teaches
students to think. I don’t know of any other course
like it. The course suggests to the students that they get
the proof of information given to them. My daughter was
discussing something with a playmate and when they could not
agree on the facts of the matter she asked, “Where is
your proof?” I was so proud of her. She has since
become comfortable enough to ask the same question of her
father and me. I am still proud of her. The question tasks
me on occasion because I am forced to think, rather than
mime my answers.
The Upper School courses are as well done as the Lower
School courses. Steven Horwich is more than fair in his
pricing of the various courses. The courses include free
web sites for required movies, suggested books that can be
found in most libraries, experiments the students can do
(almost on their own) and hints and instructions for the
parents/teachers. My daughter has friends who are public
schooled and home schooled. All her friends have made
positive comments on her course notebooks. One of her public
schooled friend asks every visit to see what is new in the
science notebook. She says my daughter “gets to learn
so much more” than she ever learns.
Our family will be staying with Connect the Thoughts
through Upper School. I am sure our daughter will take the
lessons, so beautifully presented, with her on her
life’s course. “Where is the Proof?” is
part of our daughter now and we know it will serve her
well. Some people never learn to ask that question. Because
of Steven Horwich our daughter learned to ask the question
before she had a real need to ask it. Her father and I will
be thanking Steven in our prayers for the rest of our lives.
