This semester course will pick up where the semester course Lost Tools of Writing Level IA left off learning the tools of Invention, Arrangement, and Elocution through the last four essays covered in The Lost Tools of Writing Level I. Students who desire extra practice with refutation and narratio will also benefit from this course. Each class will begin with time to read and discuss a classic fairy tale from Tales of Wonder, Volume 1, such as Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast. Later in the semester students will also read Five Children and It which was written during the golden age of children’s literature by Edith Nesbit, who influenced C.S. Lewis’ writing. These stories will give students the opportunity to apply the thinking tools they learn to a variety of characters, settings, and conflicts. Students in this course will have an opportunity to review selecting an issue, to consider both sides of the chosen issue, and to practice new tools with a final goal of a complete persuasive essay.
