Writing, Logic, & Oratory

In logic and writing, students study classical rhetoric and traditional logic. The content of their writing is whatever they are studying in history and literature.

The end of rhetoric in the classical tradition is the play, the speech, and the recitation. In oratory, students will learn how to use their memory to get to know a piece by heart and perform it well. Students achieve these objectives through three units throughout the year: The Poem, The Speech, and The Play.
