PictureAs the school year comes to an end, we decided to devote an issue of Beyond the Test to rhetoric, which was often considered the crown of a classical education. In one of our featured articles, I look back to Abraham Lincoln, Pericles, and St. Augustine to get a glimpse of the power of rhetoric. Dr. Alyssan Barnes, author of Rhetoric Alive!,explains the great effects teaching rhetoric has on today’s students. Our Featured Resource is Silva Rhetoricae, a wonderful website for introducing rhetoric.  And we Focus On: Saint Mary’s Catholic High School in Phoenix, which includes a healthy dose of rhetoric in its Seat of Wisdom Integrated Studies Program.

This content, as well as dozens of other articles and resources, are available to our member schools and educators.
