Product Description

Write Source is a student-friendly, complete language arts curriculum that integrates grammar, usage, and mechanics within an authentic writing context. With writing at the core of the program, students will learn the six traits of effective writing (ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions) and the steps of the writing process (prewriting, writing, revising, editing, publishing) while writing on cross-curricular topics.

Grade 8 lessons introduce instruction on comparison-contrast essay, theme analysis, using the library for research, giving speeches, clusters, order of location, closing sentences, transition words, an interested voice, adverbs of manner, words ending in y, and more.

The Student Text is written directly to the student, and follows the same format in each grade. Students are first introduced to the writing form through models and exercises; they then analyze the model and use the writing process to write a story or essay, using rubrics comprised of the six traits to revise and edit. To complete units, students write pieces across core subjects of science, social students, math and the arts. Along with descriptive, narrative, expository, persuasive, creative, and research writing, students will also learn basic grammar and editing skills that will help them successfully master the writing process. The back of the book contains two reference sections: a guide to basic grammar and writing and a proofreader's guide that covers mechanics, spelling, punctuation, and more. 766 indexed pages, hardcover.

The wraparoundTeacher's Edition includes reduced-size student pages that are surrounded by helpful notes. Teaching suggestions with class questions are provided, along with activity answers, objectives, literature connections, and materials needed; grammar connections support grammar and mechanics instruction through noting page numbers in other available resources. Differentiated instruction for struggling, advanced, and English-language learners is provided. Graphic organizers, blackline masters, a suggested schedule, scope & sequence, and Common Core State Standards correlations are also included. 812 pages, spiralbound, soft frontcover, hard backcover.

The Assessment Book provides a pretest, two progress tests, and a post-test which contain multiple choice questions as well as a writing assignment. 43 pages, softcover with answer key and scoring guide.

This is the 2012 Edition of Write Source.

    Did not work for us
    September 11, 2014

    I have been using the Houghton Mifflin (Saxon) grammar series, but since they do not offer a 9th grade curriculum, I thought this might work as a replacement. It was really difficult to follow. The lessons are spread out all over the book and I am not sure how one is actually supposed to follow the recommended use guidelines. I ended up sending it back. We are going to try to Total Language Plus. So far, I like it.
