What others are saying

  1. Question

    I have a 5th grader who has not yet done the Writing with Ease. He has done 4 year of FLL and some other writing programs. Where should I start?

  2. Question

    I have a 13 yo boy, grade 7. Just purchased WW S 1 and WTM Grammar programs. How do we / do we incorporate additional literature reading into our studies? He loves to read. Do I simply allow free reading of good books, or should I require additional writing assignments? Many thanks!

    • No need to do additional writing/reading assignments…he’ll get plenty of that in WWS 1. He should read lots of good books, in the subjects or genres that he enjoys.

  3. Question

    Hi,
    Is buying the textbook necessary? Can I use the workbook alone?

    • For the Writing With Skill series, it is necessary to have both the Student book and the Instructor book.

  4. Question

    I can not get the sample links to work for any of the levels or various materials. Is it possible to see samples?

  5. Question

    The posted response on May 15, 2018 shares new links for WWS Instructor and Student material. These links appear to have the complete downloadable PDFs. Was that your intent?

    • Thanks for checking! But actually those are just the samples. The samples are large because the book is VERY large. That sample is less than a third of the book.

  6. Question

    I have a 7th grader and an 8th grader. We have never used Writing with ease, but I am looking for a new writing and grammer program. Where should I start them at with a writing and grammar program. We are currently using Writing Strands intermediate level 1 (from masterbooks) for both of my girls. I really need to find something that will help prepare them for highschool and even college. Their writing and grammar skills are not where I feel they need to be at the moment.

    • For grammar: If they don’t yet have a strong foundation in grammar, we would suggest doing First Language Lessons Level 4 for one year (for both students) and then moving into our next level, “Grammar For the Well-Trained Mind.” For writing: You might try “Writing With Skill, Level 1” (with both students) at half-speed (take one year to go through half of the book). Also, Dr. Bauer has a lot of suggestions in this article: http://downloads.peacehillpress.com/samples/pdf/WWEandWWSexplanation.pdf

  7. Question

    I am looking for a writing programe for my 14 year old who battles with English skills, he is a slow reader, and has not done any writing programmes or skills development, other than the basics at a local school. He is now homeschooled and needs a program that will prepare him for his GED exams in a few years. Where would I begin?

    • We would suggest beginning with Writing With Ease, Level 3.
