$17.50
Ninth Grade, age 15-16, or any age after completing Level 4

Each book in Levels Three through Seven presents exercises that were written so that everything the students need to know to do the work is in the assignments. Most students take one year to complete a level.

The instructions in each assignment in each level:
* Identify the skill being presented
* Suggest the number of days (sessions) the average student should need to do the work
* List objectives of the exercise, so that the parents will know what parts of the skill will be learned
* Present a model, so that the child will understand what the work will be like
* Give pre-writing exercises—the child is asked to examine things or is encouraged to talk about, or read about the subject before writing
* Is broken into manageable segments so that the child is not overwhelmed with the challenge
* Present clear and detailed instructions for the writing

Each book presents parents with:
* Pages for recording the writing problems needing attention
* Ways to record, at the semester break and the year's end, the skills mastered
* Places to list those areas that should be reviewed during the next year's work

The series of books called Writing Strands present a complete language arts program for composition. They are designed to teach four modes of writing: argumentative, explanatory creative, and report. In Writing Strands children are taught the rules of writing when they need to know them to do the assignments. Each book is designed for 90 days of training and each assignment produces a report, an essay or a piece of fiction. These are not fill-in-the-blank workbooks or grammar drills. Your child can work independently, for the books are written to the child and everything your child needs to know to do the exercises is included in the four strands of writing experience which run through the levels. Each lesson identifies the skill being taught, has a listing of objectives, has a model of the skill in operation, and has day-by-day directions for your child to follow. They show children how to write.
