Lost Tools of Writing Level Two - Student Workbook


We are excited to announce the 2nd Edition of LTW Level II. Thanks to feedback from teachers and students we have returned to the ANI structure in Invention. We've also clarified the goal of the Judicial Address, the role of the Prosecution, and the role of the Defense. Changes to the workbook include special attention to the burden of the Prosecution as well as refining the Refutation, Narratio, and Exordium in the Judicial Address.

The Lost Tools of Writing Level Two, features eight new lessons (and thus eight new essays), each of which enables you and your students to dig - and think - deeper. 

In LTW I, your students learned the basics of constructing a persuasive essay. By implementing the three canons of classical rhetoric - Invention, Arrangement, and Elocution - your young writers learned the process of crafting a coherent written argument, starting with the blank slate and ending with a complete and thorough essay. Our goal in LTW I was not so much to worry about the kind of persuasive essay the students were writing so much as it was to ensure they were growing increasingly comfortable with the steps necessary to create it.

In LTW II, however, you'll continue your study of classical rhetoric by studying the judicial address, which refines the persuasive essay taught in LTW I. So just as the elements of LTW I build upon one another, so LTW II builds upon LTW I. 

Through the eight lessons/addresses in LTW II, your students will work within the framework of the three canons, but each will be aimed at this new kind of address. This familiarity will empower you as a teacher and will provide confidence for your students. 

Much is familiar: You will recognize the invention charts, the arrangement templates, and much of the format. But a lot is new as well. Featuring clarified teaching materials (with new discussion tips, simplified assessments steps, and improved examples), this new edition is the ideal follow-up for any teacher or student who is familiar and comfortable with LTW I.

Please note that the complete set of the LTW II includes one Student's Workbook. A separate workbook must be purchased for each additional student using the program. 

Orders that include ten or more student workbooks may take 3 weeks to fulfill. Please contact us with any questions or concerns regarding this time frame. Thank you!
