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, and debate as well.
A brief list of required novels will be provided shortly.
