In the last 20 years, we have begun to recapture the glory of the classical curriculum in our renewal. Now that we have seen how valuable the arts of the trivium are, we may be ready to take the next step in our mastery and implementation of them. This workshop explains the context, meaning, and incredible practicality – both in school and in ‘real life’ of classical rhetoric. It argues that rhetoric is nothing less than the key that unlocks the power of the whole classical curriculum.
