  2. Question

    Can I see several sample pages of the Student Workbook Level 1 and 3 since the local bookshop in Bangkok does not have any in stock. I plan to place an order with the bookshop today. Thanks

  3. Question

    If I am getting the student book in PDF form for my children, how many licenses do I get? Do I need a book for each child? Could I use this in a homeschool co-op setting with a handful of students?

    • Angelique, you may make as many copies as you need for your own family. For a co-op, you could either purchase a student book for each child, or you could contact us about getting a reprinting license (100 dollars per book per year per class). Email [email protected] or call 1.877.322.3445 to purchase one.

  4. Question

    I have systematically worked through Writing With Ease, Levels 1-4. Next year I’ll have a 5th grader. Is this Writing With Skill, Level 1 the next step? Are these meant for 5th-8th graders? Thanks!

    • Writing with Skill is for middle-grades students, but 5th grade may be a bit on the young side. Dr. Bauer has written a little article with recommendations about which books/lessons to do with each grade, giving various options.

  5. Question

    This will be the first year that I am using this with my kids. How do I know which level they should start with? I have 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 8th graders. Thanks!

    • For the Writing With Skill program, we highly recommend that all students do the entire program in order without skipping (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3). This particular program builds on itself, and so it is most beneficial when done from start to finish. Students generally begin this program in grade 5, 6, or 7, but it is rigorous enough to be used with 9th or 10th graders as well.

  6. Question

    I am trying to look at a sample of the student text but it seems that the link might be broken as I am redirected to the exact same page just in another tab, with no preview. I would like to see a sample in order to make a decision between buying a hard copy or pdf. Does the child need to write in the student book or could they simply use it as a ‘textbook’?

    Thanks
    Taryn

    • Taryn: Sorry about that broken link! Please use this one: http://downloads.peacehillpress.com/pdfs/samples/wws/WWSstudent-sample.pdf. When you click on it, the PDF will start downloading to your computer.
      No, the student would not write in the book for this program…there is a lot of writing, and it will need to be done on their own paper or on a computer.
