Martin Cothran’s Classical Rhetoric with Aristotle is a guided tour through the first part of the greatest single book on communication ever written: Aristotle’s Rhetoric. With questions that will help the student unlock every important aspect of the book, along with fill-in-the-blank charts and analyses of great speeches, this companion text to Aristotle’s great work will send the student on a voyage of discovery from which he will return with a competent knowledge of the basic classical principles of speech and writing.
Classical Rhetoric is not one of those subjects that many parents have experience with, which is one reason why parents have long been clamoring for an instructional DVD to go along with the course. Although Martin Cothran’s Classical Rhetoric is self-instructional, it is still nice to have the author helping your student through material that would otherwise be unfamiliar. In this DVD, Mr. Cothran takes the subject of persuasive communication and brings Aristotle’s principles to life by drawing on current events and his own experiences speaking and debating.
For those homeschool parents and teacher who want some help teaching rhetoric, Classical Rhetoric is now available on DVD!
