REVISED EDITION. What if you could learn to write well using a method that had been successful for thousands of years? Writing the Classical Way does just that, teaching ancient writing exercises (the progymnasmata) to pre-rhetoric students. These fourteen exercises help students master each aspect of narrative, expository, and persuasive writing through incremental steps.
Writing the Classical Way: Level I Workbook provides exercises to accompany the student text Writing the Classical Way. The models in this volume are primarily taken from classical authors, but masters of the English language are also included. These exercises develop a student's writing abilities through model compositions, pre-writing activities, composition analysis, essay assignments, and much more! With exercises developed and tested in the classroom, Writing the Classical Way: Level I Workbook provides a solid foundation for students wishing to write well.
