12. August 2008 Complete Writer
Young students who learn to write well need one-on-one instruction something which your child's classroom may not offer. In The Complete Writer series, Susan Wise Bauer turns every parent into a writing teacher. No experience is needed. Drawing on her fifteen years of experience in teaching writing, Susan lays out a carefully-designed sequence of steps that will teach every student to put words on paper with ease and grace. This alternative plan for teaching writing combines the best elements of old-fashioned writing instruction with innovative new educational methods and explains why so many writing programs fail. Designed for elementary-aged writers and for older students who still struggle, Writing With Ease builds a sturdy foundation of basic skills for grades 1 4 (or levels 1 4 for the older student who needs more work) all in the same book. Diagnostic tests within the book will help the parent to determine where the child needs to start and which workbook the child will need. You can use the text by itself as a guide, then choose your own copywork and dictation; or you can buy the workbooks (available separately), which do all the work for you. Each workbooks will cover one grade. This Instructor Text covers grades 1-4 in 144 lessons, 4 explanatory chapters, and 4 appendices."

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hopeful Homeschooler 16. August 2008
Von Nuts4knits - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Take this preliminary review with a particular grain of salt, for I am an English teacher who unabashedly embraces "The Well-Trained Mind" philosophy behind the Wise-Bauer/Buffington writing team. While this review is a bit premature, I am hopeful that my children will reap benefits similar to those acquired through their related Peace Hill Press grammar and history series.

SWB explains that her motivation for this book was her experience as a professor of literature and history at the prestigious College of William and Mary. Simply put, her well-educated students could not write well. She argues against the theory that one should "Give the children high-interest assignments and have them write, write, write, and revise, revise, revise." This is not how I was taught to write, but it WAS how I was taught to teach, and I, too, endured the blank and panicked students' stares produced by that philosophy.

SWB compares writing to a foreign language. The conventions must be absorbed before the non-native speaker is fluent. Says Wise-Bauer, "Imagine that you have had a year or so of conversational French...After the first year, your teacher asks you to explain the problem of evil in French...(it would be impossible) to express complicated ideas in a medium that is unfamiliar... The conventions...need to become second nature -- invisible -- so that you can concentrate on the ideas rather than the medium." Speech is natural and necessary. Writing is not. Many can, and do, get by without learning to write well.

In Writing With Ease, the elementary years are less about creative output, and more about intake and foundations. The small book is packed with week-by-week exercises (36 for each year) aimed at building one layer at a time. She covers roughly four years in a succinct 216 pages: Years One and Two: Narration, Copy work and Dictation; Years Three and Four: Putting the Steps Together. The copy work samples come primarily from fables, fairy tales, and childhood classics such as "Little House" and "Charlotte's Web". No dull prose allowed.

SWB then thoroughly describes the writing process taught through the middle and high school years, giving this homeschooling mom courage. Says Bauer, "The goal is to turn the young writer into a thoughtful student who can make use of written language, rather than struggle with it." She adds, "Good writing requires training. It demands one-on-one attention." To that I respond with a heart-felt "Amen, sister!"

I've given it four stars after I've previewed the contents, but I hope to add the fifth after the year is over.

NOTE: Some teacher preparation is required. SWB models the lessons, and then you will cull material from the student's texts and literature books. It's actually very simple to implement and takes very little time. I like to take passages from literature relating to other subjects they are already studying. My kids, second and fourth grade, respectively, love it because we are done in 5-10 minutes. SWB also gives short grammar cues for you to subtly tie in to the lesson.

I am ridiculously grateful to have my hands held when it comes to teaching writing to my own kids! I used to teach grammar and composition on the middle and high school level. I left public school dismayed by the students' response to writing in general (never mind the heinous grammatical butchery -- the slaughter wrought through "texting" still haunts me to this day). They hated and feared writing. I never expected prose worthy of Faulkner, but the ability to write simply, clearly, and meaningfully was beyond most -- even the "honor roll" students were woefully inept and overwhelmed by the simplest assignments. I had 145 students x 100 assignments (there were always many who would never in a year's time complete a single writing assignment) X 36 weeks divided by the few hours I had after the 100 daily "administrative" tasks (I actually had to spend the first precious minutes of each day doing a "clothing check" for violations -- Argh!). There was little time to address the fundamentals so obviously lacking, and even less time for meaningful (and mostly ignored) editorial, instructive feedback. I'm thankful for the experience, for I might never have known the joys of homeschooling.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Instructor Text or Student Workbook, not both. 12. Oktober 2010
Von Michele - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I am returning this Instructor text. We bought and are using the student workbooks levels 1 and 2 for my 1st and 2nd grade girls. I like having everything in one workbook for each child. The lined paper is there and the girls have enjoyed having the nice illustrations on the page as well. You could certainly carry out this program with this teacher text book and lined paper without purchasing the workbooks. You do not need both.

5.0 von 5 Sternen line upon line 17. August 2008
Von J. Syphert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
my daughter HATES to write. we've been using this program for a week, and already the sentences chosen to copy are so intriguing for her she actually requested we check out the book it's taken from. this is the child that doesn't have patience for chapter books. she's already read through 24 pages of it within the first two days of starting it. but i digress...

this copy work and narrative work is exactly what my daughter needs. mrs. bauer is precisely right when she teaches the parent that writing from thoughts is a two step process and the children need to be taught how to do those steps separately (copy work & narration - parent writes the narration). my child continuously gave me zippy little narratives because she didn't want to copy down big long sentences after she was done thinking it through. with the time to grow her writing ability even five words at a time while simultaneously strengthening her summary and narration skills, she is now on the path for inevitable success.

the best part is these writing exercises take no more than 5-10 minutes per day, four days per week. ahhh, gone are the cries in protest when i announce it's time to do writing! thank you susan bauer yet again!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best writing program for teaching thinking and organizing 13. Februar 2009
Von P. S. Mercer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Susan Wise Bauer is dead-on correct with her approach to teaching writing. I've taught persuasive writing to freshmen in universities for 12 years in Utah, Virginia, and South Carolina. What's so disheartening is that these students believe that an essay with very few punctuation errors and some big vocabulary words thrown in for good measure (usually used incorrectly) should deserve an A grade. Completely lacking from their writing is evidence of their ability to THINK and to ORGANIZE. These students (I'd roughly guess about 85% of all I've taught) feel that since they've been cranking out shallow book reports and plagiarized research papers since 1st grade, they know how to write.

I'm also a homeschooling mom of eight children, and have been troubled by every writing curriculum I've encountered--until now. Most skip from one skill to another with little connection, focus on the self, or provide little instruction relevant to the crucial persuasive writing skills children need to develop to succeed in college and the real world.

But Writing with Ease lays the foundation for teaching children to THINK about the words, the sentences, the paragraphs, the ideas. Then it teaches them to ORGANIZE those ideas. My two oldest are natural writers, and now as teenagers are succeeding well. But this book has come at the right to help me guide my two boys who struggled with even learning to read by their eighth birthdays. We've always done copy work and written notes with their science and history lessons. Now with Writing with Ease I have the instruction and lessons to move my sons to the next level of competent writing.

No skill is more critical for the success of adults in any job or career than the skill of persuasive, organized writing. Try this book. The lessons take about 10 minutes' of preparation per day (I'm not using the workbooks). Hardly a big investment for such an important skill.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Helpful for teaching 14. August 2010
Von Mary K. Bryant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I started my homeschooled son on this curriculum, just using the student workbook. Someone suggested we get this Instructor Text, as well. I was really hoping I could get by with just the student workbook, but I decided to go ahead and get this book and I found there is helpful information in here about the principles involved with teaching your child to write, and what to expect at the various ages and stages of learning. Once I got it, I thought I might not need to purchase the other levels of the companion student workbooks. However, if you don't have the student workbook, mom has to come up with a lot of the assignments herself. If you want a good overview and understanding of how to teach your child to write, this is a helpful book. If you feel that you already have a good grasp on this and you simply want your child to do the assignments, you could probably do with just the student workbook. In the Instructor Text, Bauer provides the material for the 1st week, then you need to come up with material to draw from for the next 7 weeks (from other literature, history, science books, etc., that the student is reading.) The pattern continues in this way. After purchasing the Instructor Text, I thought I wouldn't need the other student books (since we'll use levels 1-4), but when I really considered if I wanted to spend the time coming up with their material for 7 weeks at a time, In the student workbook, every assignment is provided for you. I decided to go ahead and purchase the student workbooks to save time for me. Plus, I love the material she draws excepts from and I use her ideas to form our reading lists throughout the year.
I love her approach of small, consistent lessons. The children will get a really solid foundation to writing with excellence through this curriculum, using narrations (summarizing a passage of text that was read to them in 2-3 sentences), copywork and dictation. This is NOT a creative writing curriculum, but it will teach the child the elements of writing with excellence, so when they're ready for creative writing, they have a good foundation to build on.
