  1. SWB posted a scope and sequence for WWS 1 to 3 in post #131 of this thread: Answering questions about Writing With Skill This was the document she linked: Topoi-expanded I cannot find the document at that link now. If anyone has the original scope & sequence, can you please send it to me? I can PM you my email address.
  2. SWB had posted a PDF of the WWS Scope & Sequence when WWS1 came out. I can't find it any longer. Does anyone have it?
  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've started WWS 1 with my 7th grader this year. We've used IEW for the past two years, and he did fine with it (however the checklists about drove us crazy. :laugh:) Before that we did Classical Writing Aesop A and B. He is a good writer, and can easily do written narrations. He also has experience with outlining (complete outlines, not just the one level that WWS 1 has them do.) I really like the look of this program, but I'm not sure if I should place him in a different level or if we should just push through this one more quickly since I already own it and can't return it (bought i
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. I am needing advice on how to proceed with writing for my daughter who will be in 8th grade this fall. She did 1/2 of Cover Story and then Time Capsule through Attune Up in 6th grade. This year for 7th grade we did CC, so she will have completed Lost Tools of Writing 1 as well as misc. science reports. I really don't know where to go from here. I ordered WWS for my 6th grader to start after doing IEW SWI B this year. It looks very good, but I am wondering if it is too incremental or slow for my 8th grader. She wouldn't complete the course until 10th grade at one level per year. I like th
  8. What writing style is used in WWS? My dd wants to use some periodicals instead of books for one of the writing assignments instead of books and we aren't sure the proper way to reference them. Thanks!
  9. So my 4th grade daughter is not in love with writing. We started in 2nd grade with WWE and went through WWE3 with lots of tears and fighting before we gave that up. This year we've tried a multitude of things: 6-Traits from Evan-Moore, online class through charter school, and finally hit on a gem, IEW Student Writing Intensive (SID-A). This has been working better than anything else we've used so far, but we're not very far into it yet to make a long term decision. However, I'm having to buy my curriculum for next year within the next month or two before I have much of IEW under my belt
  10. Any experience with WWS I Course? I wonder if D12 can do this independently. I wonder how much parent involvement is required with the course?
  11. 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
  12. I'm planning for logic stage which might as well start at 5th grade for us. We have 4 years to prepare well before I enroll DD in PS high school. This is most likely the plan for us unless I completely lose my fear of homeschooling high school or win the lottery and enroll her with Stanford Online. I wish we could take all the writing classes from WWS all the way to Rhetoric, but we only have 4 years. I don't know how well our local high school will prepare DD for college writing, so I'm hoping that we get in the necessary foundation during the logic years. I just preregistered for WWS
  13. Would WWS1 at half pace / my daughter's pace and Paragraph Composing for Middle School be overkill? We are currently using Sentence Composing for Elementary school to augment her grammar lessons, for example, this is an appositive and this is how writers use it. Paragraph Composing seems like the next logical step but I don't want to use two things that will teach the same thing. I see that SWB's updated recommendations have the option of Paragraph Composing and then WWS. We started WWS this week, and I figure we will finish it sometime next year, sixth grade. Essentially, would Paragraph Comp
  14. I have such a love/hate relationship with WWS. I love the way it's laid out, I love the structure, the way it breaks things down, the really quality instruction ... BUT I can't stand some of the reading selections. Worse, my 8th grade daughter (who is on week 5 in WWS Level 2) says it is SO boring -- and sometimes difficult to understand -- that writing is her most hated subject, and she dreads doing it every day. That isn't good! Especially since she is a kid who generally likes to write. I don't think she would like the MCT writing books we have on the shelf because she is a very
  15. Hi all, The instructor book and the student book for Writing With Skill, Level 3 are now available as PDF products on our webstore. The physical books are being printed right now, and will soon be shipping to our warehouse. Enjoy! Justin from Peace Hill Press
  16. 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
  17. I'm new to the Logic stage so I just had a question for those of you who are using WWS. Do you do the Notebooking/Outlining/Timeline/Source Eval with your core subjects? Or just as directed by WWS for writing? (Caveat-I've only glanced at WWS so far and it 'seems' like that is how it is set up. My question may be moot if I'm wrong about that...) Our core this year is US History. Long story short, I got the My Father's World Adventures in US History before we knew we'd be adding a 7th grader to the family. The materials are actually intended for 2-3rd graders who are the oldest students i
  18. I thought it might be helpful to organize the threads for the topics in the awesome thread about WWS by week to make it easier to search for examples. I will try to update as more samples are added to the thread. Week Threads 12 volcano 26, 142 13 volcano 42, 80, 152 14 Mars 20, 28, 46, 91, 100, 135 15 hydrothermal vents 29, 30, 31, 47, 91, 92, 104 16 desc of a person 50, 56 17 desc of a person 51, 57 18 Henry VIII 73
  19. My ds, 8th this fall, will be finishing WWS1. We plan to start our year with the poetry section. I am wanting to add a spelling program, continue with AG. Now I need to add in Literature selections and just don't know what to do. He will be doing a year of World Geography with no formal history this year. He really enjoys WWS and had great success last year with it. So we plan to continue with that as our writing instruction. I need to add Literature but want a "program". I am not into designing any lesson plans of my own. All the literature programs out there have a writing component in them
  20. 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
  21. I'm trying to figure out what to do for writing with my rising 8th grade daughter. We have spent the last 2 years working through WWS (and Creative Writer). She has done well with WWS, I see great benefit from it, but she hates it. (And she actually sees the benefit as well, but still doesn't like it.) My gut says to go on to WWS2 next year, but I am willing to entertain alternative ideas if they are as beneficial as WWS2. Any ideas? She's a good writer and needs something to challenge her. If this makes any difference, there is a chance she'll go to PS in high school. Thanks for
  22. I'm not sure whether or not to buy WWE4 for A's fourth grade, and would love some advice on how to decide about this. I do own WWS1, both teacher and student guides. This year A's Language Arts skills is turning out to be a combination of alternating WWE3 & the writing projects for Classical Writing Aesop for writing, and combination of FLL3/MCT Grammar Island for grammar. It isn't overkill because we school year-round and use the programs judiciously, but I may not be able to continue this combination into 4th grade. I see payoffs for the WWE work and don't want to drop it in
  23. I am teaching a student who by age is an 8th grader, although I think is considered a 7th grader. His education has been a mishmash. I have him working through MM grade 4 placement test (with grade identifying material removed.) He does not have the material down cold. I've seen a lot of lights come on as we work (a bar diagram rocked his math world). I'm really concerned about moving him through this material in a timely matter without holes. Has anyone covered 4 years material in 1-2 with an older student? The workbook format of Math Mammoth seems to work for him, and I already own it. S
  24. Hi all! The first ten weeks of Writing With Skill, Level 2 Instructor Text and Writing With Skill, Level 2 Student Text are now available as free PDF downloads here. That's over 400 pages of educational awesomeness. Remember, you can also pre-order these books from us by emailing info AT peacehillpress DOT com.
  25. My dd completed WWS 1 and The Creative Writer as an 8th grader. It was a huge year for her - solidifying skills and confidence building. I wrestled with continuing onward with WWS 2 (and then 3) or move directly into "just" MFW AHL for 9th grade. We did begin MFW AHL and the writing component has completely thrown us off. The focus is on the argumentative essay - same format throughout the year. There is instruction in that type of writing, but my dd looks at me with "deer in the headlights" expression asking for help. She is very frustrated. There are obviously gaps from the end of
