Category Description for Writing Strands:

Author Dave Marks believes that kids become good writers by ... writing! Not by doing endless diagramming or laboring over parts of speech worksheets. He eloquently equates the process of learning to write to learning to ride a bicycle ... you get on and ride, not spend weeks, months, or years labeling the parts of a bicycle on worksheets! Mr. Marks has 27 years of experience teaching in high school and college and also homeschooled his son using this approach (yes, his son did become a writer!). The four strands of writing (argumentative, explanatory, creative and report) are explained, modeled, and practiced throughout the 8 levels. Beginning in level 3, the author speaks directly to the student, a nice touch because Mr. Marks has a tongue-in-cheek humor that makes learning to write enjoyable! We have used this program effectively. Most children begin this program in level 3. Older children may progress more quickly through the lower levels. Dave promises that "A child, at whatever age, having worked through level eight, would be ready for college-level writing."

Does this come with an answer key?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This older edition of Writing Strands does not come with an answer key but one was not really needed as most exercises would fall under the category of "answers will vary."

The new edition, published by Master Books, does include an answer key as it also provides more objective exercises.

Love the author's humor throughout book
Our children enjoy the author's humor throughout the book. They look forward to doing their writing assignments. I like the simplicity of the program. It has greatly helped my struggling writer become interested in writing and getting his thoughts on paper. I am thankful for this program!
