This summer course offers an introduction to the new edition of The Lost Tools of Writing Level II, led by CiRCE-Certified Master Teacher Cheryl Floyd.
Building on the persuasive essay learned in Level I, we will explore the judicial address. Over six sessions, this class for adults will model the mimetic teaching process, strengthen the foundation laid by Level I, and refine previously learned skills and ideas.
This short course will cover the purpose and nature of LTW II, along with common difficulties that students and teachers sometimes experience. We will especially focus on the completely different invention process that begins in JA 3 and is required by judicial addresses.
Working through sample lessons in each two-hour class will provide opportunities for us to grow in understanding this material, to ask questions, and to discuss the ideas.
We will work through the Special Topics of invention used to generate ideas for the judicial address and practice refining some arrangement elements from Level I. (Since our time is so short, elocution will be included only as answers to your questions.)
Join us in deepening our understanding of the judicial address!
Prerequisites: Attendees should know the three canons of rhetoric practiced in LTW I: Invention, Arrangement, and Elocution. In addition, knowing the Common Topics and the pieces of the outline will help. Further, if you have internalized the thinking skills of Level I first, approaching Level II will be a delight.
Required Reading: To prepare, please purchase your LTW Level II resources (Teacher’s guide or complete set). The LTW II Teacher’s Guide will be used during class sessions. Reading, writing, and teaching individual lessons during the class weeks will also prove helpful.
