The Progymnasmata: Preliminary Rhetoric Exercises
This resource was the original basis for my Progymnasmata Tutorials and makes an ideal teacher's guide for those who wish to teach the Progymnasmata themselves. It covers narration, fable, proverb, description, anecdote, and refutation/confirmation, and is available for those who order a Resource Membership or are enrolled in Progymnasmata Tutorials.

Progym: Classical Writing Workouts
Narrative, Fable, and Proverb (3 workbooks)
These resources are best for those who want to concentrate on individual exercises over an extended period of time and are available for those who order a Resource Membership or are enrolled in Progymnasmata Tutorials. One of the challenges facing modern Classical educators, particularly those with a Christian world view, is coming up with appropriate assignments for their students. These workbooks present fifteen full exercises each, using sources from Great Books and good books across the ages, offering great flexibility to schools and home schools.
