Four Square Writing Method

All > English / Writing & Grammar > WRITING PROGRAMS > Other Writing Programs > Four Square Writing Method

This step-by-step method of teaching writing skills will fit into any reading and language arts program. These reproducible workbooks challenge students to organize their thoughts in descriptive, narrative, persuasive, and mostly expository writings by using the four-square method. This method instructs students to write their main thought above a four-square box. Students then proceed to fill in the box, putting primary thoughts in three of the squares and a conclusion in the last. Each book in this series is broken down into five sections. In section one, students become familiar with the foursquare method by looking at examples and filling out some straight-forward squares. Students are primarily taught how to use this method in expository writing, so in section two, the book gives instructions on how to use the method for other styles of writing. In section three, the book provides samples of the method and essays that come from the samples. The essays can be used as models for students, and instructors could also use this section for reference. Section four supplies hints for applying the four-square method to other subject areas, as well as to a longer research or term paper. The last section in each book provides prompts to help students get started after they have learned the entire method. Overall, these books provide useful instruction to students who are visual learners and also to students who just need help organizing and focusing their writing. This unique approach to teaching basic writing skills will help students understand their writing and how to structure it better. The books with CDs are revised and updated versions that include an enhanced CD of printable PDFs of additional material examples, activities, and writing exercises. The book for Early Learners focuses on introducing and explaining the method and simply illustrating its use through drawing and dictation. ~ Rachel
