In this yearlong course students will write about six major ancient civilizations—Sumer, Egypt, Israel, Babylon, Greece, and Rome—while working progressively through the nine IEW units and a variety of stylistic techniques.
The Student Book includes assignments, blank outlines, source texts, checklists, vocabulary cards and quizzes, and grammar practice. The Teacher's Manual gives tips for creatively teaching each lesson, hints for grammar instruction, and more.
These lessons are designed to be used by an instructor who has been through the Teaching Writing: Structure & Style seminar, either live or on DVD.
Perfect for homeschoolers, homeschool co-ops, tutors, and hybrid schools, this theme-based writing curriculum supports parents and teachers in teaching writing to elementary and early middle school students (grades 3–6).
