Product Description

Designed to teach structure and style in writing as based on Institute for Excellence in Writing's Structure and Style course, these Ancient History based-lessons will encourage plenty of quality adjectives and verb usage. Examples are set in ancient history (Sumner, Egypt, Israel, Babylon, Greece & Rome); "history note" sections are intended to provide insight into the civilizations students will be writing about. However, this book is not intended for use as a curriculum replacement, but rather as a tool for broadening subject knowledge while teaching writing.

Each unit follows the IEW S&S unit outline structure of key word outlines, narrative stories, summarizing, etc. Thirty-two lessons teach students about "Keyword Outlines", rough draft checklists, practice sentences, and other strengthening exercises for "polished" writing. The Appendix includes a stylistic techniques chart, lists of quality adjectives, strong verbs, -ly words, five-senses words, proofreading marks, and vocabulary words.

The purchase of this book entitles the owner to a download of the student resource notebook (110 pages) as well as Ancient History-Based Writing Lessons Reproducible Checklists ebook (37 pages). A set of vocabulary cards printed on light green cardstock is also included at the back of the book for parents to cut out.

This course assumes the teacher is familiar with "Teaching Writing: Structure and Style," which is necessary to teach this program well.

266 pages plus "vocabulary card" on cardstock to cut out, spiralbound softcover. This book may be photocopied for children within the same family. 32 lessons plus appendices. Adaptable to multiple age groups; schedules are given for students in Grades 3-5 and in Grades 6-8.
