Mom0012 Posted June 28, 2012 Share Posted June 28, 2012 How are your students doing with having their assignments meet the word count requirements set by SWB? We are on Week 5, step 3 (writing about the events that led to Jenner's discovery of the smallpox vaccine). My son's initial paper was 165 words, but I just went through it with him and had him cross out most of the details SWB notes as unimportant in the teacher's manual (which excludes almost half the outline), I don't see where he'll wind up with nearly 150 words. He'd have to really expand on what is left of the outline to come close to that and what would be the point of that if we're trying to avoid extraneous detailsl? Anyone else have this trouble or is it just us? Thanks! Lisa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
