Regarding content, the readings that lay the foundation and provide inspiration for each lesson are wonderfully rich and thought-provoking. This is our most successful writing program so far and I am looking forward to continuing with this series.
They are making great progress and have moved from dreading their writing assignments to eagerly anticipating them each week. This is the only program in 6 years my 6th-grade son has not cried and he even said today that he likes it.
I LOVE that you maintain the positive elements of classical education without requiring the tedious repetition and copious problems that so many classical curriculum models fall prey too. My daughter asks every day to get started on her writing!
My fifth and third grader have just finished up Narrative 1 and I am impressed with how painlessly their writing has improved. I wish it had been around for my older kids.
Even my 7-year-old wants to join in sometimes.
While my son claims to hate writing, this is what he shared with me today: Not only did I see my kids really thinking and improving their writing skills, they actually enjoyed it along the way! Thank you for the value you add to homeschooling!
I love both the content and method of this curriculum. She does love to write outside of school, but it has always been hard to get her to write for school, so this is such a victory!
My kids no longer complain about writing. In my own humble opinion! Fable, he had been a very reluctant writer. She begged me to do it and worked through three revisions of it without a single complaint! My husband and I were amazed, and humbled, at how much was stored up in that little mind of his, just waiting to come out.
My 4th-grade daughter is doing great too. The thought has occurred to me many times that experiences like these are exactly the reason I love the freedom of homeschooling.
It is easy to implement, interesting, and just enough work to challenge but not frustrate. Your books manage to accomplish this so I always look forward to seeing what else you have published.
Many interesting discussions have stemmed from the readings, essay assignments and formal discussion topics. The tone is conversational, but the information is complex; the exercises are creative, yet rigorous.
The stories are wonderful and engaging and we have had so much fun with it. After only the first lesson, he wrote an outstanding original story completely on his own.
When a child is so preoccupied with getting quantity done, he has no time left to ingest, process and assimilate concepts. I am a former public school teacher and searched long and hard for a high-quality writing curriculum that would inspire my son to be creative while also teaching him structure.
I love how they are introducing cultural literacy and logic while teaching writing. Besides being very visually appealing, it hits just the right balance for us in terms of age-appropriate instruction and lively fun activities.
My youngest three will definitely be using it all the way through. Please continue the good work of providing excellent classical materials that are manageable for home educators. I like the pace and understanding it is teaching. After dabbling for years in [other] programs.
It is restful learning! I knew that the progymnasmata would provide for the needs of our classically trained children, but was completely intimidated by the few resources available to teach those exercises. Today we are finishing lesson 2. These programs were too boring or dry or complicated; they sucked the life out of the subject and my kids were bored.
Thank you, Classical Academic Press, for this program.View Notes - Anteater's Guide to Writing and Rhetoric - Chapters from WRITING 39B at University of California, Irvine. Wiwtcul Knea~mipmo1icd abut-try. '0.“ Was/1 m.“ gamma) 11m: In MA.
