  • Research Writing: Grades 5–10: 8:30 AM–11:00 AM
    Units 4 and 6: Students will learn the skill of choosing limited facts from multiple references; fusing their outlines, and applying selected stylistic techniques.
  • Introduction to Rhetoric: Grades 5–10: 11:30 AM–2:00 PM
    Students will engage two of the ancient arts of rhetoric: encomium and invective. Learning the art of encomium, students find something to praise and praise it. Learning the art of invective, students find something to condemn and condemn it. As they work, students will also discuss other methods of persuasion and have the opportunity to use ethos, pathos, and logos in their writing.
  • Inventive Writing: Grades 5–10: 2:30 PM–5:00 PM
    Unit 7: Students will learn to tackle the “blank page” by retrieving information from their brains, creating a key word outline, writing a multiple paragraph essay, and applying selected stylistic techniques.
