Students will write a senior thesis, all while mastering the Topics of Invention, Arrangement tools, and Elocution skills. From clearly defining their thesis topic, to thoughtful arrangement, and appropriate expression, students will experience steady progress in the writing process. Students will be guided through responsible research including how to properly cite their authority and how to be aware of bias in their sources. This classical writing program teaches students more than just the basics of writing a senior thesis. It will also challenge their thinking by teaching them to integrate their years of learning into a single issue. This class will join the three canons of rhetoric practiced in LTW Levels I-III with the canons of memory and delivery. We will discuss how listening and carefully investigating the wisdom of the past to answer a universal question, might guide them in humbly persuading their community in the present. Students in this course will complete a senior thesis as well as receive instruction in memory and delivery in preparation for their presentation.
