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."

This is a great writing curriculum! It has short exercises for each day and the instruction has humor thrown in, too. As an English major, I also have found that it does a good job teaching many different aspects of writing in small, orderly steps.

We like the Writing Strands Program, We are secular homeschoolers and see that it is going to a christian publisher and in the email I received it said "minor" changes were going to be made. I didn't want to see that so I decided to buy the rest of the series that I needed.

How long would this book take to complete? Is it a semester-long book?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Writing Strands 6 would normally provide the writing instruction component of a 6th grade language arts program for an academic year. You could use it over the entire year or complete it during one semester.
