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 as young as 6th grade, and teaches students the fourteen composition skills known as the progymnasmata. The Encomiums, Invectives, and Comparison stage level VI, provides lessons that comprise stages 8-10 of the 14 stages, with six lessons per stage.
Students read a passage, and then complete a set of paragraph-writing exercises that are repeated from lesson to lesson; these paragraphs are then combined into a final essay. Paragraphs call for a prologue with thesis statement, contrary paragraph, exposition, comparison, intention, digression, rejection of pity, heads of purpose, and then the final draft. Questions guide students through each section to help them move in the right direction.
9th-12th Grade is the recommended grade level for this book in the series. 168 pages, softcover. Non-reproducible, consumable worktext. Classical Composition Book VI / Book 6.
