While writing about topics from U.S. history, from the Explorers to Modern Times, students will develop more advanced writing skills such as thesis statements, MLA format, persuasive essays, research papers, and more. This course is designed for students with at least one year of experience with IEW.
The Student Book contains assignments, instructions, engaging source texts, blank outlines, checklists, sample compositions, and clever vocabulary cards. The Teacher’s Manual includes creative lesson planning tips, vocabulary quizzes, and answer keys.
These lessons are designed to be used by an instructor who has been through the Teaching Writing: Structure and Style seminar, either live or on DVD.
Perfect for homeschoolers, homeschool co-ops, tutors, and hybrid schools, this theme-based writing curriculum supports parents and teachers in teaching writing to high school students with prior experience in IEW.
Suggested activities in Janice Campbell’s Excellence in Literature: American Literature are optional.
