Meaningful Composition, IEW, Writing Strands?


Recommended Posts

Where would you start in MC? My ds is currently using BJU Writing and Grammar 6th gr., but I am concerned about the writing in the next book. I think he may need more hand-holding and I am exploring our options.


I am also considering: IEW and Writing Strands.


Thoughts, pros & cons?

We are currently using MC for 5th grade. Dd is slowly working her way through the 2nd semester 4th grade book. (We started the 4+ book halfway through 4th grade.) I cannot compare it to BJU writing as I have never used BJU, but this may help you with placement. MC definitely holds your hand. It takes you step-by-step through the writing process. I've heard it referred to as IEW for idiots (which is exactly what I need to teach writing).
