The Rhetoric Companion
In clear, powerful, and amazingly funny prose, the Wilson family delights us again with The Rhetoric Companion, a guide to what rhetoric is and its impact on your life.

Become a Skillful Communicator
Written to help teens become skillful speakers, The Rhetoric Companion is a primer to understanding classical rhetoric and its practice in the modern day.

A Must-Read for Every Teen
The thirty-one lively and practical chapters are amazingly short, quite easy to understand, and they are sure to produce intelligent, intentional speakers and communicators. This is a must-read for every teen.

Also Available
At the end of each of the thirty-two lessons in The Rhetoric Companion text are assignments, recommended readings from classical sources, and review questions. A nifty Answer Key is available separately.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2017 Twelfth-Grade Curriculum Kit!
