Subject: Composition

The skill called composition applies to things written and also to things spoken. This is where Columbia students study the art of expressing themselves, though they only make a beginning before they leave for the 9th grade. We use a series of simple exercises that were first recommended by the Greek philosopher and scientist Aristotle (died 322 B.C.) as a preparation for students. The exercises were further developed over hundreds of years, and served as a foundation for understanding the expressive use of language.

Students will have an exercise to complete on their own each day, usually short. The exercises will repeat using different stories or subjects as the year progresses.
