Questions and The Topics

Recently Buck Holler came for a visit and modeled some great teaching for us.  During his visit the issue of teaching students to ask great questions came up.  He referenced the Topics from the ancient Canons of Rhetoric and did not have much time to develop these ideas.  I thought brief blogs on each of these ideas might be helpful reference.  So before I jump into the first, let me simply outline them.  Then I will blog on each from time to time and categorize these so that you could read back through them as a whole if you wish.  Look for the “Teaching with the Topics” category over on the sidebar.

The Five Topics:

I.                    Definition

II.                  Comparison

III.                Relationship

IV.                Circumstance

V.                  Testimony
