Writing With Skill is our intermediate writing curriculum targeted at middle school and early high school students.
Start with Level 1 and progress through Levels 2 and 3 as each level builds on previous instruction.
You need an Instructor's Guide and a Student Workbook for each level. The books are available in PDF or paperback format.
Each title's product page (on the website) has a sample to show you how the curriculum works. Look for a link under the image of the cover.
For additional detailed information, take a look at the Scope and Sequence for the Writing With Skill series. To learn about some options for using the curriculum at a different pace or with a student who got a later start, check out Susan Wise Bauer's recommendations. These recommendations are embedded in The Well-Trained Mind, Fourth Edition, but at the end of this article, you will find a chart showing different scenarios, which is helpful if your student is "out of synch" with typical pathways. The article gives some advice for compressing the instruction if you have a short time-frame.
Many families wish to provide specific grammar instruction for their students. Well-Trained Mind Press offers Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind for the intermediate student, but you can use any vendor's grammar curriculum with Writing With Skill.
