  1. My kiddos will be in 6th & 3rd grade next year. I've pretty much got the rest of our curriculum worked out EXCEPT language arts. We haven't been very classical and really want to do a more WTM/classical approach next year. I think it will greatly benefit both my kiddos. Is there anything (blog, article, flow chart, interpretive dance) that explain how to transition? What levels do we start, which do we skip or move faster or slower? Take First Lang. Lessons. My 8 year old hasn't had formal grammar or writing yet. He's followed along with his brother while watching IEW but its time for mo
  2. I am doing the literary analysis bit of WWS with A. and I think it is great for him and for me: he is not naturally a literary analysis kind of fellow, and as we work through the WWS lessons I can see that they will help me do a much better job of doing the WTM-style literary analysis work during the rest of our year. As in, do it at all -- I'd never figured out how to explain the nuts-and-bolts of even a beginning WTM-style literary paper. After 1 week with WWS and Rikki-tikki-tavi both he and I are figuring out how to approach the assignments. I don't _think_ I want to do all of W
  3. Hi all, While supplies last, we're offering VERY LIGHTLY scratched/scuffed books from Well-Trained Mind Press for 60% off the cover price! We have The Story of the World (activity books, textbooks, and tests), First Language Lessons, Writing With Ease, Writing With Skill, The Creative Writer, Telling God's Story, and many more. These books (which, honestly, aren't very scratched, and just look like they'll look once your children have them for a few weeks anyway) are only available through our office, not our website, so call 1.877.322.3445 to find out what's available and to make your purc
  4. I started Writing With Skill I with my sixth grader this fall, but she was so reluctant with it that I switched to just doing written narrations across the curriculum. Next year I was planning on trying again with WWS, but a friend gave me her set of Lost Tools of Writing 1 (she was ditching CC). The books look well structured, and I'm thinking I could combine next year with her sister, who will be in 6th next year. Could anyone speak to their experiences with these? Both of these kids have been doing narrations (heavily CM overall) and I'm looking for the transition into writing longer essays
  5. I'm trying to decide what will fit my daughter best for high school language arts and history. She completed Writing with Skill 1 and is halfway through Writing with Skill 2. In 9th grade she did MFW's Ancient History and Literature. Last year she di MFW's World History and Literature. She struggled both years to write the essays. I want her to finish WWS 2 and do WWS 3 over the next two years. She will do MFW's 11th grade program in the fall. It looks like she will be doing a lot of literature analysis and very little writing. Since WWS is considered middle school level, I'm wonde
  6. I know there are many questions that I won't answer here...but post them and I'll do my best to address them. So, we'll start here.... 1) AVAILABILITY OF LEVEL 1. Currently we are on schedule to have the entire, proofread, typeset, finished PDF ready for sale in October 2011; and the print book for sale December 2011. (If copies are ready sooner, we'll let you know.) In the meantime, the first seven weeks and the full table of contents are available as free PDF downloads from the Well-Trained Mind blog: http://www.welltrainedmind.com/resource-roundup/writing-with-skill-the-full-ta
  7. I read somewhere that CAP's W&R book 3 flows nicely into WWS. I anticipate finishing up CAP W&R book 3 before my daughter is ready for WWS and was thinking of going through W&R book 4 before moving on to WWS. Would there be too much overlap between book 4 and WWS? It looks like W&R books 4-6 do cover roughly the same material as WWS. Any opinions on whether one does a better job of it than the other?
  8. I have used WWS1 and 1/2 of WWS2 with my older, and we are about to beta test WWS3 (while concurrently finishing WWS2!) and begin WWS1 with my younger. The biggest thing I have found so far is that as much as I wish I could just hand a writing program over to my children and then just help when needed, that this approach will not work for us. I must be fully engaged in their learning. I think that for many kids the art of writing needs a coach in addition to good materials. So I want to talk about how we will actually teach this curriculum and make it work for our kids. So here are
  9. Hi y'all, Just a quick note that we have posted free samples of "Writing With Skill, Level 3 Instructor Text" and "Writing With Skill, Level 3 Student Workbook" on the Peace Hill Press samples page. For each book, the sample contains the Table of Contents, the first ten weeks of lessons, and any appendices that are relevant to those lessons. We are getting ready to hand these books to the printer, and expect to have copies for sale within the next two months. Peace Hill Press will have it first, then Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I'll announce availability here, and Peace Hill Press wil
  10. Has anyone done this? Feel free to link me to another thread if this has been discussed. We are on week 6 of WWS. My dd is on the young side for WWS (4th grade - just turned 10), so we are going at a slooow pace. My plan is to go through Week 15 this year. She does the outlines and narrations on her own. We have been going over the day 3 models together. So far so good. Then, DD and I went over the week 4/5 writing assignment and I saw her eyes glaze over. I spent the weekend thinking about it and decided to have her write on a topic from history. She already knows how to take notes, a
  11. I am looking for writing curriculum that help you, the teacher, to improve your own skill so you can effectively help your children with their writing. I have a hard time with knowing how to help my children with their writing. I like curricula that teach the teacher. For people who have used WWS, do you notice your own writing is improving? When you evaluate written work, do you have a better grasp of style, organization, etc. after using WWS for a while? Are there other curricula/books out there that have helped you grow as a teacher of the written word? Thanks!

  14. UPDATE on Writing With Skill, Level Two: We're happy to announce that this weekend we're sending Writing With Skill, Level Two (Instructor Text) and Writing With Skill, Level Two (Student Text) to the printers. We expect to be shipping books to customers by early September (possibly earlier than that, but we don't want to raise unrealistic hopes). The books are going to be fantastic. Also, huge: 632 pages for the Instructor text and 504 for the Student text. We should market them as bicep-training. In anticipation of their release... 1. On Monday, August 5th, we will make availabl
  15. Hello everyone---I have a DS10 who is an avid reader and a natural writer. I have been struggling with finding the right curriculum for him, however; we used WWE back when he was in 2nd-3rd grade, then used Writing Strands which I didn't like so much last year. This year, I switched to Writing With Skill as it seemed to offer teaching in areas that he hadn't learned much about yet (outlining, etc.) He has NOT enjoyed it, to the point where he says, "I hate writing!" which is a dagger to this writer-mom's heart! What do your kids who are similar to him enjoy using? We are finishing up FFL4
  16. DS just started WWS this term. I have no idea how, or even if, I should be giving numeric grades on assignments. Yes, I know, it differs for everyone, but humor me please by telling me how you grade with it. This is his writing curric that is part of his English I course.
  17. I plan on having my oldest start WWS1 this summer. In anticipation, I was wondering if anyone had already compiled the learnings that others have had about the different lessons -- which ones need some clarifications (like the Rikki Tikki Tavi Lit Analysis one) and which ones are likely to take a little longer. I know some of the insights are in the master WWS thread & some are on the Writing sub-board. One document or thread that we could refer to would be *great* for those who are starting WWS (or in the middle of it). Has anyone already done this or should I add it to my list "To Do
  18. I've read a couple threads that say WWS is good for developing some basic skills to become good writers. DS, 8th grader, has used IEW SWI B and has done well with it along with some of the theme books from IEW. This year we are using Starting Points and writing the worldview essay was painful! Can someone explain how WWS will help so that some day he can write an essay? It has become apparent that he can't write if he has to come up with content and that I don't know how to teach a writing a thesis statement, introduction, etc. Not to mention how to grade..... Can someone explain how WWS
  19. That SWB will probably not be writing any more of the COmplete Writer Series? Of course I feel compassion for SWB and I am happy for her, that she is closing one very stressful chapter of her life, and opening a business which sounds like a wonderful dream to me. But I do kinda need to know about my future choices with Writing curriculum with my dd who is now using WWE and I had assumed could go all the way with The Complete Writer. http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/magazine/home-schooling-pioneer-susan-wise-bauer-is-well-versed-in-controversy/2012/10/29/521a3070-da80-11
  20. My daughter is enjoying Writing with Skill, and I really like what she's learning from it. My question is, is anyone NOT doing the lessons 4 days a week? Are you just planning to go through the whole book and finish when it's finished, or will you skip lessons or weeks if you plan to be done by May? In some ways I feel "behind," (maybe I'm still de-schooling). I'm learning there's not really such a thing, but still... Darlene
  21. Hi folks, The Instructor and Student books for Writing With Skill are now available for purchase from our webstore! Copies are in our warehouse just waiting to be delivered to your house. http://www.welltrainedmind.com/store/language-arts/writing/writing-middle-grades.html Those of you who preordered at the discounted price can expect your books to arrive in the next few days (we're using UPS ground), IF you responded to our phone request for your confirmation & payment information. If you missed our call, please call our office at 1.877.322.3445. We don't want you to have to wait an
  22. I have been away from the forum boards for a while and didn't realize that PHP has released Advanced Language Lessons and Writing With Skill. (This after I have gone and bought R&S and Writing Strands as WTM suggests!) So, does this mean what is written in WTM is not accurate? That SWB and company would recommend ALL and WWS instead? Anyone have enough experience with these newer programs to make a recommendation? I am stymied by what to do... Thanks much!
  23. I have an upcoming 9th grader ds that just really struggles with writing. We used IEW a couple years but he balked at most of it and I struggled to teach it. Last year we used Essentials in Writing. He did not have 8th grade finished yet and so we used 7th grade. He did much better but I feel like he just isn't ready for 9th grade work yet. I keep getting drawn back to the WWE but feel like I am starting too late. I saw the Writing with Skill and wonder if it is too young. I was wondering if anyone had tried this with an older student and did you feel like it was enough for your reluctant
  24. Can you give me your reviews on Writing with Skill. What ages is it suitable for. Effective. or any other comments and your experiences with it.
  25. We've posted a new, 10-minute video to our YouTube channel: Susan Wise Bauer introducing and explaining our new middle-grades writing curriculum, Writing With Skill. She includes tips for getting the most out of the instructor book & student book, grading student assignments, etc. Plus, if you zoom WAAAAY in on the background, you can see what Susan is reading these days.
