Persuasive Writing and Classical Rhetoric
Practicing the Habits of Great Writers
This is a 36-week language arts curriculum for students in grades 9-12. Students will learn how to write persuasively through the framework of classical rhetoric and by practicing the habits of great writers: writers write, writers read, and writers think. While the focus is on writing, students will also read and interpret great works of non-fiction and learn about style, including correctness in grammar and clarity in sentence structure. Use this curriculum by itself for language arts credit or as a supplement to hone student writing skills.
