The Complete Writer: Writing with Skill Level 3 Student Workbook
Writing with Skill: Level 3 is the third book in the Writing with Skill series, and the 7th within the full The Complete Writer series by Susan Wise Bauer.
Perfect for middle school students who are continuing to work independently, the text is written directly to the student and organized by weeks, days, and then "steps" that progressively move students through the workbook. Students simply read through their lesson (which integrates instruction and the exercises) and follow the instructions given for each day.
Level 3 builds upon the skills introduced in Level 2, with a focus on outlining, rewriting, research, and documentation, while introducing new skills such as narrative by significance, explanation by cause and effect, instructional sequence, and experimental sequence. Topics in history, science, literature, and poetry are provided with all necessary source material included right in the text! Students will also spend more time researching and writing their own original compositions. Students will also study:
- Topic sentences
- Documentation, plagiarism, introductions, and conclusions
- Writing about fiction & poetry
- Place description and chronological narrative
Using literary models from great literature and step-by-step instructions on the lesson concepts, students will gain the tools needed to write with clarify and confidence. Students will need to write their assignments in a separate book. Grades 5-8. 416 pages, softcover.
