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.
Comparison, the eighth book of twelve in the Writing & Rhetoric series from Classical Academic Press, teaches students how to write well-crafted, six-paragraph expository essays comparing two subjects. They'll learn how to analyze two subjects and compare similarities and differences between them while making use of a wide range of writing skills, including the ability to inform, to describe, to narrate, and to analyze.
Lessons start with the reading selection, and are followed by the student's narration of the story plus a few questions or annotation instructions 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 or related poems to memorize and discuss. The first half of the book contains 'Go Deeper' exercises which help students practice important skills important to each lesson; 'Writing Time' exercises are in the back half of the book include sentence play, copiousness and comparison exercises. 'Writing Time' exercises may take more than one day to complete. The 'Speak It' section, found in the second half of the book, provides opportunities for students to memorize, recite, discuss, debate, read dramatically, and act. 'Revise It' exercises (also in the latter half) provides basic exercises that introduce students to revision and proofreading.
