The High School Writing course is designed for students in grades 9 - 12 who are at least 14 years of age.


Students will learn two forms of academic writing—the literary analysis paper and the classical rhetoric paper.

Students will need the following:

  • A Gmail account (classroom management and assignments take place via Google Docs)

  • Access to a computer

  • Lost Tools of Writing Level I Student Workbook (workbooks may be provided at a discount if the course fills completely)

  • Selected Greek myths

  • Selected Grimm’s Fairy Tales
