Does there happen to be a (tentative) scope and sequence for the entire program somewhere? I'm such a big picture person, and would really like to know where we will end up after using all 4 levels. I'm also particularly curious to know how the program addresses the problem of helping kids come up with something to say. Or does WWS (all levels) stick with having kids write summaries/reports from source material and wait on writing original material in high school?
Look, we have power! (kind of--the office is still on generator, but THANK GOODNESS the house is up and running.) Will do my best to catch up here.
I do have a full scope and sequence (at least a tentative one) for all four years, but I need to reduce it to a form that other people will be able to read.
On my to-do list, promise.
The teaching of the topoi will lead students, by the last year, to doing original research and composition. Even the first level ends with an independent project--topics are suggested for the teacher, in case the kid comes up empty, but by the end of the first year students should already have tools to find topics.
