Write Source Grade 10 Homeschool Package

Write Source is a student-friendly, complete language arts curriculum that integrates grammar, usage, and mechanics within an authentic writing context. With writing at the core of the program, students will learn the six traits of effective writing (ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions) and the steps of the writing process (prewriting, writing, revising, editing, publishing) while writing on cross-curricular topics. 

Grade 10 lessons introduce instruction on phase autobiographies, expository prompts, skeltonic verses, oral presentations, interjections, prewriting lists, avoiding plagiarism, quotations, revising accurate facts, a confident voice, diagonals when quoting poetry, collective nouns, and more. 

The Student Text is written directly to the student, and follows the same format in each grade. Students are first introduced to the writing form through models and exercises; they then analyze the model and use the writing process to write a story or essay, using rubrics comprised of the six traits to revise and edit. To complete units, students write pieces across core subjects of science, social students, math and the arts. Along with descriptive, narrative, expository, persuasive, creative, and research writing, students will also learn basic grammar and editing skills that will help them successfully master the writing process. The back of the book contains two reference sections: a guide to basic grammar and writing and a proofreader's guide that covers mechanics, spelling, punctuation, and more. 782 indexed pages, hardcover. 

The wraparoundTeacher's Edition includes reduced-size student pages that are surrounded by helpful notes. Teaching suggestions with class questions are provided, along with activity answers, objectives, literature connections, and materials needed; grammar connections support grammar and mechanics instruction through noting page numbers in other available resources. Differentiated instruction for struggling, advanced, and English-language learners is provided. Graphic organizers, blackline masters, a suggested schedule, scope & sequence, and Common Core State Standards correlations are also included. 844 pages, spiralbound, soft frontcover, hard backcover.
