    Writing Strands: Challenging Writing Projects for Homeschoolers, Level 3

    This group of assignments in the series called Writing Strands is designed to give homeschooled third level students a grounding in the very complicated process of giving others their thoughts in written form. This level is designed for students who, in public school, would be considered ready for third or even up to seventh grade. Of course, third and seventh grade students would write much differently, but that is not a problem. Both can experience learning the skills presented in this level. It has been designed to be widely applied, for there are many experiences here that most young writers should have. Scope & Sequence: Topics covered in this level are following directions (basic), sentence & paragraph control (basic), rewriting sentences (basic), description (people), description (people's thoughts), organization (activities), organization (objects), description (perspective), story creation (creative), description (organization), description (actions), narrative events (organization), creative (narrative). (Grades 3 to 7.) The Evaluating Writing book, a valuable asset to this writing curriculum available below.
