Product Description

Susan Wise Bauer has created a simple-to-use program designed to teach the fundamentals of the English language: The Complete Writer series. This program is comprised of this teacher's instruction book as well as the (sold-separately) workbooks for Grades/Levels 1-4.

Writing with Ease will walk the teacher step-by-step through each level of assignments. A week of complete scripted lessons with reading passages, narration, and copywork assignments are given, which may be extended with personally chosen supplements. Various font sizes make it easy to distinguish between scripted questions, narrations to read, and instructions for the teacher. The 4 levels (covering grades 1-4) are each designed to be completed in a 36-week school year. 252 indexed pages, softcover.

    This book outlines the entire Writing With Ease Program. I liked the overview of the program. I have purchased most of the workbooks for my children. My children are on book one and book two.

    "Writing with Ease Strong Fundamentals" 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" teaches the student on how to take inarticulate ideas, put the ideas into words and how to put the words down on paper. The curriculum is divided into three stages: Writing with Ease (Grades 1-4), Writing with Skill (Grades 5-8) and Writing with Style (Grades 9-12). In Years 1 and 2 the student will focus on practicing narration, copy work and dictation. In Years 3 and 4 the student will focus on putting the steps of narration, copy work and dictation together. In Years 5-8 the student will focus on Diagramming: Sentence-Level Ordering, and Outlining: Composition-Level Ordering. In Years 9-12 the student will focus on the Thesis Statement: Deciding What to Write About, The Progymnasmata: Techniques of Persuasion and Constant Short Papers.

    "Writing with Ease" is divided into four parts, Part 1: Understanding the Process, Part 2: The Lessons, Appendices and Bibliography of Excerpts. Part 1: Understanding the Process consists of four sections: Why Writing Programs Fail, The Three Stages, Using This Book and Where Should I Begin. Part 2: The Lessons consists of five sections: Preschool and Kindergarten, Year One, Year Two, Year Three and Year Four. The appendices consist of four sections: After Year Four, Troubleshooting, Frequently Asked Questions and Resources. The bibliography of excerpts is included as a reference resource.

    To accompany each level of the curriculum the author has created teacher/student workbooks.

    Each work text is divided into a scripted four day lesson plan for 36 weeks, student pages and a reading selections index.

    Presently the "Writing with Ease" curriculum consists of "Writing with Ease" hardcover book and workbooks for

    Levels 1-4. "Writing with Skill" Level 1 workbook is scheduled to be released in 2012. Subsequent levels of "Writing with Skill" and "Writing With Style" are in development.

    I would highly recommend purchasing the hardcover book along with the teacher/student workbooks.
