  1. Question

    Do the colors of the books correspond to levels or years? Can I use any color book to start with and then mix around which one I’ll use next, or is it a better or more linear way to do it?

    • You can do the books (purple, red) in any order. You use the same Instructor Text each year, with a different workbook and key…the workbooks use different sentences and examples to reinforce the same lessons.

  2. Question

    Thank you again for your reply. I have one more question. You suggested below to start my 8th grader (11.5 yrs) with Writing with Skills 1. Isn’t Writing With Skills meant for The Logic Stage only. If I start with book 1 (which I assume would take a year to finish) , what would he do in grade 9? Would he continue with book 2 and 3 or go ahead with a program for The Rhetoric Stage? Wouldn’t Writing with Skill 1 be too easy? Thank you again.

    • No, WWS isn’t just for Logic stage. It can be used well into high school. He could do Level 1 in 8th grade, Level 2 in 9th grade, and Level 3 in 10th grade, and then do a rhetoric curriculum in grades 11 and 12.

  3. Question

    Thank you for your prompt reply. It mentions on your website that there are 4 workbooks for the intermediate grammar series but I only see the purple and red workbooks. Where can I find the other 2? Also is the Writing with Skill all about narration/ dictation or do they actually do their own independent writing as well? Would you recommend taking the online classes in your academy or start with the books? Thank you.

    • The next two books (Blue and Yellow) are expected to be released in late 2019 (blue) and early 2021 (yellow).
      Writing With Skill is not about dictation and narration. Those skills are covered in our elementary series, “Writing With Ease.” In Writing With Skill, they’ll be doing their own independent writing.
      Our books are scripted, so you should be able to use them at home. But if time is an issue and you don’t have time to do one-on-one instruction in that subject, or if your student needs some extra help/guidance/attention for writing from a trained teacher, then the Academy classes are a good idea.

  4. Question

    Hello. I am confused about which book to purchase for my 8th grader who is 11.5 years old. Both the Purple and Red books say they are the first of a 4 year series. Can you please specify which age group/ grade each color workbook is meant for? Also which Writing Book would be suitable for my son. I used your Elementary books for him but the past year we did a full time curriculum (Calvert) and want to return to classic education this year. Thank you.

    • Sorry about the confusion. The workbooks can be done in either order (red then purple, or purple then red). The same Core Instructor Text is used for each year. The workbooks reinforce the same lessons, using different exercises and sentences.
      They are intended for middle school and high school, so your 8th grader could go ahead and use them.
      For Writing, we would suggest our Writing With Skill curriculum, starting with Level 1.

  5. Question

    You don’t specify the number of pages your workbooks have..! Why not?
    Also, your title, Grammar for the Well Trained…, has a colon in its “By:” line that has no grammatical significance, which convinces me you are meagre in your approach to teach me or my students traditional composition and rhetoric. (Or was that an editorial decision?)

    • The Red Workbook shown here is 608 pages.

  6. Question

    Is red harder than purple?

    • No, it is not harder. It just uses different sentences, exercises, and examples to practice the same concepts. You can use the Red and the Purple in any order.

  7. Question

    if I have a fifth grader what set would you suggest I start with?

    • It doesn’t make a huge difference, but we suggest you start with Purple. Since she’s in fifth grade, go slowly and don’t try to finish the whole book in one school year.

  8. Question

    If I have the Purple set is this all I need for the next level?

    • Yes, if you already have the Purple set, and the Core instructor text, then this is all you need.
