Description

Using a classical approach, this class will use Writing and Rhetoric Book 3: Narrative 2– Student Addition, by Classical Academic Press. This model of writing focuses on reading, analyzing, and practicing writing through the study of classic literature.

Each week, as a class we begin the chapter with a classic story, lesson highlights and discussion groups. Students will have opportunity to share their own personal writing in a fun and supportive environment. We will learn to summarize, analyze, interpret, and build vocabulary. Weekly grammar exercises are included where students find and correct grammar, spelling and punctuation errors.

Homework:
Students will be required to complete homework at home each week. (Estimated 1-1.5hrs per week) Students will be working through their student workbooks, which includes: reading stories, completing comprehension questions, vocabulary fill in the blanks, long paragraph writing and more. Additional worksheets and/or grammar homework may be assigned.

*Please purchase:
Writing and Rhetoric Book 3: Narrative 2- Student Edition

Other supplemental materials, including Fix it Grammar, will be provided in class.

**Prerequisites:
Students should be able to read and write multiple paragraphs with basic conventions (capitalization, punctuation, space between words).

***Writing (4th-6th) will be offered for a full year.
