Any news about it? It's been a while since I last saw any announcements. Would love an alternative to the other logic stage grammar options, none of which look like they'll be taken well by my older kid…

It's finished...and in production! Don't have an actual publication date yet but I will keep the board posted on its progress.

I wanted so badly to use it when I needed it because we had such great success with the other books.

I'm glad to hear it! I have second grader moving steadily toward the current cliff at the end of FLL 4. Sounds like she will be saved the grammar-flailing my olders went through.

I am so excited!! My son Jack used FLL 4 last year. He told me today about his new English course "Mom, I'm glad we did FLL last year. If not, I would be so lost right now. "

Thanks for your hard work 💕

So sad that it'll be too late for my 5th grader (he's thriving in Rod & Staff, though, so it's all good), but happy I still have my 3rd grader and he'll need ALL in a couple years!

Does anyone know what 'in production' means in terms of guessing a release date? I don't want to ask SWB because anything she says will be taken as gospel. But for those who have an idea of how this kind of thing works, does this mean it seems reasonable for it to be ready for 2017-2018? Sooner? Later? Guesses?

Is it directed to the student?

 

In the transition from WWE to WWS, we were thrilled that WWS is directed to the student. It was time (for both of us) for that change to take place. So that worked out well.

 

With FLL, we all reached a point where we simply maxed out our patience for grammar to be so heavily teacher-directed. All the teaching was in the teacher text, more or less, and every little thing was teacher-directed... to the point of dread. (sorry)

 

For all three of my girls, we moved on to CLE LA, just to have some breathing room with grammar. But I admit that there are some aspects of FLL that I do miss. My students do not miss it, though. They enjoy the relative independence of CLE, and I like the fact that the teaching is directed to the students.

 

So... Advanced Language Lessons will be directed to the student, yes?

I've noticed. But it still annoys me. Sometimes I want to give them a thumbs up.

My son can't wait until ALL is released for sale. In the meantime, I am making him slog through Rod & Staff. I have promised him he can switch the minute I can buy ALL!

This is referenced in a class for the WTM Academy so it is coming out by fall. I still haven't seen a date.

Is there any more information available about how this series works?

Three of the WTM academy classes say they use book 1 of this series, the basic, Intermediate, and advanced.

How many books are there in the series?
How many of them are coming out in the fall?
Can a seventh or eighth grader use the books that will be available in the fall and cover everything that Rod and Staff level 7 or 8 covers?

Inquiring minds who are shopping and planning for next year want to know...

I don't think anyone except a WTM employee can answer these questions for you since none of us have seen the book(s).

 

I THINK there is one master book which covers all the levels you see on the WTMAcademy page. Then, individual workbooks can be used for beginner, intermediate, & advanced work. But, again, we don't know yet.  I'm assuming at least the master book is coming out this fall. I have no idea if the workbooks are ready for publishing yet or not.

 

I think we are all  :drool5: .

Just to add on to what RootAnn said... it is possible for WTMA to use the book before it's published. When my son took Intro to Expository Writing, they gave us PDF copies of the student pages for WWE 3 and 4. Or at least for select lessons. They didn't use the whole book.

SWB mentioned on Facebook that the PDF at least would be available before the start of next school year. (And I let out a big schoolgirl squee!)
