• Classical Writing - Poetry for Beginners - Text book, Student Workbooks A+B, Instructor Guides for Student Workbooks A+B - SET OF 5 BOOKS

For beginners of all ages, from Grade 5 upwards. Classical Writing is a writing curriculum for beginners all the way through high school. Our method is based on the ancient Greek progymnasmata, a set of exercises that come from a writing tradition which has produced many of the best thinkers, authors, and statesmen of the past two thousand years. We believe, along with the ancients, that training in writing cannot be separated from training in virtue. Our aim is to teach students the art of putting virtuous thoughts into words — true, beautiful, and persuasive words. Poetry for Beginners provides up to two years of poetry instruction, typically studied in fifth and sixth grade. The skills learned in Poetry for Beginners are the necessary foundation for Intermediate Poetry and Advanced Poetry. Even older students need to master the concepts presented in this foundational text. We have developed the Older Beginners series to provide a means for older students to complete this book in just 12 weeks. The models we use in Poetry for Beginners include nursery rhymes, children’s songs, hymns, and verses from many American and English poets of the last five centuries. Our selection of poets includes Robert Louis Stevenson, William Blake, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Geoffrey Chaucer, Martin Luther, William Wordsworth, Dylan Thomas, as well as many others. Covers two years of work. FULL SET OF 5 BOOKS.
