From Logos Press’ website:
The Imitation in Writing method follows great minds like the American colonialist – Ben Franklin and the ancient Roman – Marcus Fabius Quintilian. Students will read and familiarize themselves with a new story each week. After studying the story, memorizing the key facts, and learning the new vocabulary, students will re-write the same story using their own words. Students are not “hung up” trying to decide what story they are telling, but they only have to think about how to re-tell the story they already know.
