Classical Composition

 "What if you could teach your child using the same writing program that produced such masters of the language as John Milton, William Shakespeare, Benjamin Franklin? What if you could have the same basic composition curriculum used by Quintilian, the greatest teacher of ancient rhetoric, and Cicero, the greatest persuasive teacher of all time?"

"The method of Memoria Press' Classical Composition writing program is called progymnasmata, which was an ancient course in pre-rhetoric writing drills.  This method was developed in the 4th century A.D., and was used as early as 100 B.C, and possibly even earlier, in the Golden Age of Greece. It was used for centuries in western civilization."

Jim Selby has blown the dust off of the writing curriculum that was used in schools for over 1,500 years......
