Young students who learn to write well need one-on-one instructionsomething which your child's classroom may not offer. In The Complete Writer series, Susan Wise Bauer turns every parent into a writing teacher. No experience is needed. Drawing on her fifteen years of experience in teaching writing, Susan lays out a carefully-designed sequence of steps that will teach every student to put words on paper with ease and grace.
This alternative plan for teaching writing combines the best elements of old-fashioned writing instruction with innovative new educational methodsand explains why so many writing programs fail.
Designed for elementary-aged writers and for older students who still struggle, Writing With Ease builds a sturdy foundation of basic skills for grades 1–4 (or levels 1–4 for the older student who needs more work) all in the same book. Diagnostic tests within the book will help the parent to determine where the child needs to start and which workbook the child will need.
You can use the text by itself as a guide, then choose your own copywork and dictation; or you can buy the workbooks, which do all the work for you.
Each workbook covers one grade.
