About the Event
CHES Board Member, Vanessa Fagan, will be offering a writing class for middle school/ high schoolers (7th-12thgrade) this upcoming school year.
Text: Lost Tools of Writing.
When: Thursday mornings 11-12p.m. September 7-April 25 or May 2.
Where: Barbee Decker’s house in West End
Students will need the student manual: Lost Tools of Writing and a notebook for writing.
I would like to have 8-12 students to enhance the discussion of our topics.
The students will write 9 essays. The essays will be written over a three week period. On the third week the students will read their essays aloud in class (one week for each canon).
The Lost Tools of Writing uses “the time tested canons of classical rhetoric - Invention, Arrangement, and Elocution” to teach students how to grow into better thinkers and writers. The text focuses on teaching students to write persuasive essays.
