Writing Strands: Intermediate 2 is part of the newly-revised Writing Strands series; this volume combines Reading Strands with Writing Strands Level 5 from the prior edition of this curriculum. It's designed to be used after the student has completed Writing Strands: Intermediate 1, and teaches students how to construct effective paragraphs, write persuasively and explore narrative voice while also developing the student's reading, writing, and speaking skills. Students will learn how to read and evaluate literature, practice spelling, analyze worldview, and write a story.
This resource covers 180 days of instruction and includes a weekly lesson schedule, student worksheets, a glossary of helpful terms, and an answer key for the objective questions in the reading lesson portion.
Each week alternates between writing lessons and reading lessons; for their reading, students will read biblical passages as well as books chosen and assigned by the parent.
