Student Writing Intensive A Student Materials
These materials include both instruction and writingassignments.
These materials may offer some light grammar instruction, but the focusis mainly on writing of all types.
Materials in this series (SWI) are addressed to the student where the Teaching Writing: Structure and Style (TWSS) program addresses the parent/teacher. This is a 10-hour video class in which students watch the first segment, then complete an assignment on their own. Follow-up assignments should be given until the student becomes comfortable with the model and checklist. Students then go on to the next segment, and so on. Materials are available in three grade ranges: A for grades 3 to 5; B for grades 6 to 8; and C for grades 9 to 12. If you have students in more than one range, the author recommends "shooting for the middle". Content of courses for younger students is based more on the types of writing the student would do, but concepts presented would apply to students of any age.
Each course includes five DVDs (Structure & Style Overview disc was added in 2012) for course presentation and one student notebook per level. Student materials include lesson plans, instructions, handouts, and forms, all in a 3-ring binder. Student materials are also available separately. We also offer a combo package that includes the newly revised TWSS seminar for teacher/parents and the SWI seminar for students.
