Time-tested classical techniques—the imitation and analysis of great writers—combined with original composition exercises in history, science, biography, and literature

The Student Workbook encourages independent composition, while the Instructor Text contains easy-to-use supporting information for the teacher, rubrics for grading, sample compositions, and dialogue to use while teaching. Together, the Student Workbook and Instructor Text provide a full year of middle-grade writing instruction, preparing students to enter high-level rhetoric.

  • First volume of four that will prepare students for high-level rhetoric and composition

Features of the program:

  • This Student Workbook encourages independence by directing all assignments to the student
  • Instructor Text (sold separately) provides scripted dialogue to use when the student has difficulty, plus detailed guidance on how to evaluate the student’s work
  • Second volume of four that will prepare students for high-level rhetoric and composition
