Year Long Course.
Cost: $75.00 Registration Fee, $647 (Billed through FACTS Management System)
In this year-long course, students will hone the persuasive writing skills they developed in LTW Level I and practice reasoning on a deeper level. Having learned to ask whether a character should have taken a certain action, they will now consider whether that character should be admonished, or even punished, for that action. Students will continue to use the Five Common Topics to delve into Homer’s epics. In addition, they will be introduced to the Special Topics of the Judicial Address which aim for Justice by examining Evidence, Laws, Motive, Virtue, and Vice. Students will continue to order their thoughts through Arrangement and express them powerfully through new schemes and tropes of Elocution. They will weigh competing goods to uncover truth and persuade a specific judge, who disagrees with their position, of the justice of their cause.
