Writing needs to be taught just like any other subject, and letting students be 'free' to write without a model is often letting them jump in the deep end without learning to swim first!
Writing & Rhetoric assumes students learn best by first reading excellent literature and then imitating those writers. Students who complete the entire program will learn to write narrative, expository, descriptive, and persuasive essays while developing their own unique style. Each exercise is designed to teach a skill that can be employed across all subjects. Skills are arranged from simple to complex, and the cumulative nature of each chapter reviews skills from earlier in the book, helping students to build a solid foundation of writing skills.
Refutation and Confirmation, the fifth book of twelve in the Writing & Rhetoric series from Classical Academic Press, exposes students to 'refutation,' which is a short essay that attacks certain parts of a narrative. Students will learn to identify and refute parts of a narrative that are unbelievable, improbable, unclear, or improper. Students will also learn to write a 'confirmation'-a short essay defending certain parts of a narrative that are believable, probable, clear or proper.
Lessons start with the reading selection, and are followed by the student's narration of the story in the 'Tell in Back' portion of the lesson. The 'Talk about It' section provides students with questions that require personal application and critical thinking. 'Go Deeper' questions are multiple-choice questions that cover writing concepts and vocabulary in the piece. 'Writing Time' exercises integrate editing, rewriting, storytelling exercises, and other writing assignments.
286 non-reproducible pages, softcover. Consumable workbook. NIV Scripture used. This workbook is part of the Writing & Rhetoric curriculum and covers the refutation & confirmation essays; it is the fifth book in the series, and is designed for grades 5-6 or up. Covers 1 semester.
