jibaker103 Posted January 30, 2012 Share Posted January 30, 2012 I have a 12 year old nephew and 16 year old son that need practice with dictation and narration. Before Christmas break we started the WWS 1 sample and both of them struggled. The 12 year old struggled immensely with proper sentences and punctuation and had no clue how to give a written summary in two or three sentences. His oral narrations go on and on forever going into vivid details that get him side tracked. The 16 year old could summarize but went over the sentence count and it was very stilted and boring. He looses his beautiful voice and style, that shines through in his creative writing, when completing these exercises. His narrations are just ok, no interesting descriptions with this either. I have stopped WWS 1 at Week 1 Day 4 for the 12 year old and Week 2 Day 3 for the 16 year old. I gave each of them the WWE Evaluation on different days and they both had issues giving me a concise narration in two or three sentences as well as skipping words and not getting all the punctuation correctly while performing dictation. This 7th grade year is the first year homeschooling for the 12 year old. His 6th grade was horrible with D's and F's. I suspect ADHD Inattentive and plan to get him tested very soon. This 10th grade year is the 4th year of homeschooling the 16 year old. He is an A and B student except for math and grammar in which he struggles immensely with. I suspect LD's and plan to get him tested very soon. So after knowing all of this where should I place them in WWE? I'm debating between Level 2 and 3 unless the hive thinks I should consider another level. I am all ears!!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
