What others are saying

  1. Question

    Is the workbook necessary to accompany the instructor text for writing?

    • It is highly recommended. You can do it without the workbook if you pick your own texts for the student to read and summarize each week, but most people find that to be a lot of extra work.

  2. Question

    Where is Level 4 book ?

    • This series is a three-level series. After completing level 3, the student is ready for advanced writing (sometimes called Rhetoric).

  3. Question

    Do you keep the papers from the WWS1 in the binder and add papers from WWS2? Or do you start with a clean binder each year?

    • Rebecca: You could do it either way, but we slightly lean toward starting a clean binder each year, since otherwise it gets bulky and heavy pretty quickly.

  4. Question

    Can you start at Level 2 or 3 without doing Level 1?

    • Sarah: For this curriculum, we do not recommend skipping any levels, because there is so much material covered in each level, and because the levels build on each other.
