The Lost Tools of Writing is a literature-based academic writing program designed to train students in the art of classical composition. Through a series of simple, sequential exercises, students will build the foundational skills of:
—invention (knowing what to write about)
—arrangement (organizing thoughts & ideas)
—elocution (expressing ideas clearly & cohesively).
Using a variety of short novels and stories, students will practice writing basic persuasive and comparison essays, as well as learn how to self-edit and proofread their written work.
While an excellent course for learning to write academically, The Lost Tools of Writing lays the groundwork for successful public speaking, logical thinking, decision-making, and debate as well.
This class is not intended to replace English 1,2 3 or 4 but to add additional help to prepare your child for college.
