Writing and Rhetoric Placement

Recommended Posts

Hi all!


Where would you place this student? She is coming out of private school, going into 7th grade but probably more of a 6th grade level. She is dyslexic but has been through a dyslexia tutoring program. She can handle the physical act of writing well but does still struggle with comprehension when she has to read on her own. That's something we are working on. I am tutoring her this year for her first year of being homeschooled. She has used mainly Abeka since 3rd grade but this year they are branching out to make school more fun. She will be using either ELTL level 4 or 5 but I'm thinking she might need some additional writing instruction and W&R seems to dovetail nicely with ELTL. Thoughts?

I would place her anytime Narrative II and after. Narrative II ends with a long creative writing assignment but I don't remember there being a lot of longer assignments in it otherwise. If you want to go straight to essay writing, skip to Chriea which has six or seven essays. Fable and Narrative I are probably too elementary. Narrative II reviews a lot of the first two books anyway.
