Julieofsardis Posted June 13, 2009 Share Posted June 13, 2009 I know this has been discussed before, but I've searched and not found discussions on how much writing is appropriate. I also think I remember that the most people believe that the right amount is subjective, but I just cannot decide for myself how much writing to assign dd. She went to PS last year and did horribly little writing, but we did do quite a bit the year before in 7th grade. She will be writing lots of long and short summaries for history. She is going to do R&S 7 for grammar, but I'm not sure how much of the composition aspect I'm going to use. I don't know how much writing she will do for Science as I'm outsourcing Physical Science to a co-op. She will be reading several literary works and I'm planning to make up my own assignments for literary criticism and summaries. But, what is the right amount of writing for a 9th grader. She isn't totally opposed to writing, but although she's is a smart girl, she's not academically bent. I don't want to overwhelm her, but I do want to challenge her in this area. Any opinions, or can you direct me to a previous discussion or a website that might help. Thanks for any help! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
