Your task:: Write a powerful, eloquent, fat-free essay as assigned by the ancient geniuses who wrote these exercises.. Some of the progymnasmata require two different essays. Each weekly assignment is given on that week's session web page. On a random basis, students will be requested to declaim their progymnasmata in class.

You will receive full credit for the Wiki if it includes 13 complete, well-written, interesting, fat-free progymnasmata exactly as assigned.

All progymnasmata will be checked at mid-term, and are due by Nov. 24, 2010. Please do not write anything too personal or too gross to be shared with others in the class.
