See early 20th century in America through the eyes of engaging characters and stories from a variety of geographical settings. Learn to consider and write about the issues they faced. Using the canons of Invention (how to generate ideas), Arrangement (how to order ideas), and Elocution (how to express ideas), students will learn to diligently consider both sides of issues they observe and choose to explore. Students will craft arguments to persuade others of their positions. They will develop a thinking and writing toolkit they can carry with them and utilize any time they have an issue to consider and a cause to persuade.
Additional Texts: The teacher will also assign a few short stories and will provide PDFs of those resources.
