Courses this book is used in:
- Classical Composition 5: Common Topic Stage:
- Homeschool (Prerequisites: Classical Composition 1, 2, 3 & 4)
This set of exercises, Common Topic, is more difficult to categorize by modern composition theory, but would likely fall under the descriptive essay. The students are learning how to amplify evil attributes. They will use all of the previous skills learned in the exercises - narrative, expository, and argumentative - but must now apply those skills in a more creative and natural way than the previous stages. The Common Topic exercises look more like an "essay."
