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.
Encomium & Vituperation, the seventh book of twelve in the Writing & Rhetoric series from Classical Academic Press, continues to develop of the art of persuasive writing and oration. Students will learn to write an encomium-a short essay praising the virtues of something or someone-as well as how to write a vituperation-a critical essay that reveals faults. While learning to write these essays of praise and criticism, students will also finish a research project on a fascinating person and learn to research a subject, take notes, create an essay from those notes, and cite sources.
Lessons start with the reading selection, and are followed by the student's narration of the story plus an annotation of the reading 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. The 'Memoria' portion provides quotes to memorize and discuss; 'Writing Time' exercises integrate information on types of sentences and a variety of other exercises that include finding and writing supporting information, background details, and other elements.
