Writing needs to be taught just like any other subject, and letting students be 'free' to write without a model is often letting them jump in the deep end without learning to swim first!
Writing & Rhetoric assumes students learn best by reading excellent literature and improving their own writing skills by imitating those writers. For students who complete the entire program, they will read and learn to write narrative, expository, descriptive, and persuasive essays while developing a unique style; this book, Fable covers narrative writing. Each exercise is designed to teach a skill that can be employed across all subjects. Skills are arranged from simple to complex, and the cumulative nature of each chapter reviews skills from earlier in the book, helping students to build a solid foundation of writing skills.
In Fable, students will learn about the form of fables, discover culturally important examples, practice reading short texts, learn to copy accurately, strengthen their memory through dictation, gain opportunities to imitate sentences & fables, learn about the concepts of the main idea/character traits, and more.
Lessons start with the fable, and are followed by the student's narration of the story. The 'Talk about It' section provides students with questions that require personal application and critical thinking. 'Go Deeper' questions are multiple-choice questions that cover writing concepts and vocabulary in the piece. 'Writing Time' exercises integrate copywork, dictation, 'sentence play,' and rewriting exercises.
154 non-reproducible pages, softcover. NIV Scripture used. This workbook is part of the Writing & Rhetoric curriculum and covers the narrative writing style; it is the first book in the series, and is designed for grades 3-4. Covers 1 semester.
