High School Composition II

Description: Classical Composition is a fourteen-stage writing program that prepares students for university-level writing. The program is based on the “progymnasmata,” a system of writing instruction that was the primary method of teaching and learning writing for most of the history of Western civilization. Students will complete a review lesson from each previous stage, and then move on to the Refutation/Confirmation and Common Topic stages. Students will need to devote approximately 45-60 minutes per day for this class. The grade is based on attendance, participation, and final drafts. This class is worth 1 high school credit in English, Language Arts, Writing, or Composition.

Grade Level: 10-12 (ages 15-18)

Prerequisites: Completion of Chreia/Maxim Students should be proficient with English grammar, be able to write grammatically complete sentences, construct paragraphs, and edit their work with the help of a parent (if needed).

Required Materials: Refutation/Confirmation and  Common Topic student guides. Also, students will need their Classical Composition Student Guides from all prior levels to use as review. Teacher Guides are optional but recommended. Students will also need a USB headset microphone (built-in microphones also work).
