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 writing skills by imitating those writers. Students who complete the entire program will read and learn to write narrative, expository, descriptive, and persuasive essays while developing a unique style. 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 Narrative I, the second book of twelve in the Writing & Rhetoric series from Classical Academic Press, uses parable, myth, and other tales to teach beginning writers the craft of writing well. Lessons focus on beginning/middle/end; written and oral narration; longer writing assignments; the main idea; conflict; adding dialogue and description; writing given stories; and more.
Lessons start with the fable, and are followed by the student's narration of the story in the 'Tell in Back' portion of the lesson. 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,' rewriting exercises, and other assignments.
139 non-reproducible pages, softcover. Consumable workbook. NIV Scripture used. This workbook is part of the Writing & Rhetoric curriculum and covers the narrative writing style; it is the second book in the series, and is designed for grades 3-4 and up. Covers 1 semester.
