Continue to use the classical approach in all of your subjects- - including writing! Memoria Press' Classical Composition program has updated the teacher's manuals that go along with their updated versions of author James Selby's classic homeschool curriculum.
This series is designed for students to begin as early as in 6th grade, and teaches students the fourteen composition skills known as the progymnasmata. This Thesis and Law level IX stage provides 13 lessons that comprise the 9th of 14 stages.
This stage helps students hone reasoning skills through the introduction of counterpoint and resolution, and provides students with many opportunities to create arguments (Invention) through using 'Heads of purpose' which are then demonstrated using 'heads of development.' Students are given a topic (e.g. 'When Should One Learn Logic and Rhetoric' or 'Approval/Disapproval for a Law that Suspends Dress Code Violators' ); they are then given an outline to fill in paragraph-by-paragraph, and which is then re-written into a final draft. This book will prepare students for advanced rhetoric courses, improve their skills of argumentation, and help give them the ability to write essays for college entrance exams.
Successful students will gain the skills necessary to effectively communicate through both written and oral composition while mastering memory and delivery skills and developing vocabulary, diction, spelling, grammar, style, word variation, sentence structure, and more.
12th Grade is recommended for this set of books. 120 pages, softcover. Non-reproducible, consumable worktext. Classical Composition Book IX / Book 9.
