ISBN/SKU: 
9781935027003U
WriteShop Primary Book A is recommended for students in kindergarten or first grade. The program accommodates pre-writers as well as beginning and developing writers. It teaches the skills of the writing process at the very simplest level through engaging activities, crafts, and picture books and creates an environment that promotes a joy of learning. Since early lessons have the option to be entirely oral on the part of the child, there is no pressure, only the opportunity to talk about things that are familiar to him as he watches Mom write down his words. Slowly and gently, the child is asked to help with the actual writing, first in simple words, then through copywork. Extra challenges appear throughout each lesson to keep the interest of a more advanced child. Format: Soft-cover book with plastic-coil binding, 186 pages Author: Nancy I.

USED CLASSICAL COMPOSITION BOOK 1, FABLE STAGE TEACHER GUIDE (USED)

$7.00
ISBN/SKU: 
9781615381548U
Have you been looking for a composition program that incorporates the classical approach? Well, we've got something even better: Memoria Press' new Classical Composition program, written by James Selby, doesn't just incorporate the classical approach, it is the classical approach. Going back to the method of writing instruction used for over 2,000 years, Classical Composition teaches the student 14 composition skills, called the progymnasmata, a set of elementary rhetorical exercises that formed the basis of persuasive writing. This approach was used to teach writing by Quintilian and Cicero, and produced writers such as Milton, Shakespeare, and Benjamin Franklin.
In the Fable Stage, students learn to master the ability of variation and paraphrasing, implementing the classical tenet of imitation. The texts they use as models are taken from the fable writer, Aesop. Teacher Guide sold separately.
