Quick Overview

A one-semester course for grades 5 or 6 and up


Think of the progymnasmata as a step-by-step apprenticeship in the art of writing and rhetoric.


In the Writing & Rhetoric series, author Paul Kortepeter has recovered this proven method of teaching writing in conjunction with critical thinking and speaking.


Writing & Rhetoric: Refutation & Confirmation (Student Edition) provides students with forms and models of excellent writing that they will imitate as they progress down the path to masterful writing.


This is the fifth in a series of 12 books that will train students over 6 years.


Refutation & Confirmation A refutation is a short essay that attacks certain parts of a narrative.


In this book, students will learn to identify and refute, or criticize, parts of a narrative that are unbelievable, improbable, unclear, or improper.


A confirmation is a short essay that defends certain parts of a narrative.


When students see parts of a narrative that are believable, probable, clear, or proper, they will confirm them.


After learning to identify the parts of a story that can be attacked or defended, students will practice writing refutations or confirmations using sound arguments to explain their opinions.
