A promise of a “comprehensive” program is enticing. Can one
book possibly cover everything?
Kathryn Stout has done a tremendous
service to homeschoolers with her Design-A-Study
guides. They provide a detailed scope and sequence for our study, along with
teaching tips and ideas.
Composition lives up to its name. Mrs. Stout gives us instruction in how to
teach, what to teach, and what to expect from our students. Detailed coverage
of prewriting is highlighted, followed by in-depth instruction in descriptive,
persuasive, narrative, and expository writing. Further sections are devoted to
grammar and punctuation, and evaluating student writing.
This one volume can be used for
composition instruction in grades K to
12. You will be inspired to encourage writing in all areas
of your curriculum with the help of this guide. 124 pages, softcover from
