Common Topic Stage



Discovering the Skills of Writing

This set of exercises, Common Topic, is more difficult to categorize by modern composition theory but would likely fall under the descriptive essay. The students are learning how to amplify evil attributes. They will use all of the previous skills learned in the exercises—narrative, expository and argumentative but must now apply those skills in a more creative and, many say, more pleasing or natural way than the previous stages. The Common Topic exercises look more like an “essay.”
