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 in the student book 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. A set of vocabulary cards printed on light green cardstock is also included at the back of the book for parents to cut out.

The teacher's manual features reduced-size, inset copies of the student book pages with the correct answers overlaid. Teacher's notes are inserted into the pages where needed, with instructions given in the surrounding margins. Instructions to teachers, answers to questions, sample key word outlines, brainstorming, ideas, review games, and helps for motivating students are included. Teachers can read through the manual and following the special inserted instructions and helps.

Adaptable to multiple age groups for students Grades 3-5 and in Grades 6-8.

This course assumes the teacher is familiar with "Teaching Writing: Structure and Style," which is necessary to teach this program well; teachers should own a copy of the TWSS seminar workbook.
