This course picks up where Lost Tools of Writing Level One course ended and therefore is open only to returning students or those who have spoken with the instructor. Instruction will begin in the fall with a review of Level One material. Then the class will learn to write the Judicial Essay, all while learning and mastering new Topics of Invention, Arrangement tools, and Elocution skills. Level 2 essays will include citations, a focus on the audience, problems of bias, and explorations of justice, laws, evidence, and motive. Students will use the updated Lost Tools of Writing Level 2 second edition for this course.
During our first semester, we will explore the adventures of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island and Kidnapped. In our second semester, we will explore Alexandre Dumas’s The Count of Monte Cristo. During both semesters, we will experience strong characters that challenge us to ask whether their actions were justified. Using these characters alongside our Lost Tools of Writing II, students will contemplate friendships and justice by learning to write the judicial address.
