Publisher Description:

The Introduction to Composition Teacher Key contains the answers to the Introduction to Composition Student Guide. Recommended for Grades 3-4.

Our Introduction to Composition course focuses on the concepts of narration, dictation, and copywork. Reading passages are taken from Farmer Boy, Charlotte's Web, A Bear Called Paddington, and Mr. Popper's Penguins, with supplemental lessons from The Moffats. Students are given guided questions to help them formulate a summary of the passage they have read. After giving an oral summary of their reading, their written work consists of a written summary and copying a couple of sentences from dictation. The goal of this first writing course is to help students become more proficient in listening and writing skills, a great preparation for the Memoria Press writing program, Classical Composition. Introduction to Composition is a year-long writing course that goes along perfectly with our Third Grade Literature Guides, but can be used independently as well.

Category Description for Introduction to Composition:

The goal of this course? "To model correct and expressive writing to the students by formulatingsentences as a group, with the teacher functioning as the primary editor." This course will prepare the student for Memoria Press Classical Composition. I love how MP can take a seemingly complicated process and give you simple steps to accomplish it. You conclude, "Hey, this is doable!" The Student Book is a worktext that provides space for the student to complete the simple steps of each of the thirty lessons: 1) Read a passage from a book thats being studied (i.e., Farmer Boy, Best Christmas Pageant Ever, Charlottes Web, and Moffats), 2) Discuss the questions provided, 3) Help students develop outlines and three-sentence summaries (first presented orally, then written on the board and edited as a class), and 4) dictation (two sentences from the original book). Its easy to see how thesesimple lessons prepared consistently once a week will result in a students increase in confidenceand accomplishment. Ten supplemental lessons cover sentences, letter writing, and book reports.

The Teacher Key is a duplicate of the Student Book, but with answers provided. Spiral Bound Lesson Plan book provides concise background teaching information and 3-day per week lessons plans for 33 weeks in a grid format for ease in checking off completed assignments.

While these lessons were designed with a classroom in mind and do require teacher-student interaction, I can envision all the "board work" being done on either a computer or tablet. Student/ Teacher books each are 40 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

Recommended by The Well Trained Mind. We need a bridge from public school to classical education and this seems to be a good step for us. Being a new homeschooler I wanted the extra support before branching out on my own.

Do I really need the student workbook if I have her write on notebook paper using the teachers manual as a guide?
A shopper on Jul 29, 2020
I purchased the lesson plan, teachers guide and student workbook. I believe you can easily just use the teachers guide for this workbook. Also, I did not realize it when I purchased the kit that there are many sections in the workbook that require reading from specific pages of the stories, Farmers Boy, Charlottes Web, A Bear called Paddington, Mr Poppers Penguins and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. So to make best use of the book I recommend having those books too. Hope this is helpful!!! I'm looking forward to the resources in the Appendix!
