Chrysalis Academy Posted December 22, 2011 Share Posted December 22, 2011 I just got my copy of WWS, watched SWB's video, and listened to her middle grade writing MP3. (I'm not planning on starting dd with this till the fall, but am compulsively planning ahead, as usual! :D) In the middle-grade writing MP3 (which predates WWS), SWB suggests that the 5th grade student do short, daily writing assignments across the curriculum. She suggests two outline assignments from science or history, 2 summaries, and 1 literary analysis. Here is my question: Does WWS replace those assignments, or are you guys assigning a daily WWS lesson, *and* an additional writing assignment, in history, science or lit? WWS looks pretty intense to me, and seems like it would be enough direct writing instruction, but I'm wondering what those of you who are using it are finding. Thanks!
