    Writing With Ease Work Book: Level 3 is authored by Susan Wise Bauer. She is a faculty member of the College of William and Mary, and co-author of "The Well Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home."

    Writing With Ease Work Book: Level 3 is a companion to Bauer's text "Writing With Ease: Strong Fundamentals." Please see my review of "Writing With Ease: Strong Fundamentals" for a comprehensive overview of the curriculum.

    End of the Year Evaluation

    Included in the work book are a list of classic and modern literature selections and consumable student pages.

    Overall, we have been pleased with Ms. Bauer's logical approach to writing instruction.

    At the beginning our child was a "reluctant writer."

    However, over the course of several years, they have blossomed into a "confident writer."

    Since our child has accomplished the goals/objectives within this curriculum, they will move onto Learning Language Arts Through Literature Gray Level in the fall.
