The Workbook contains two parts: the Instructor Section and the Student Pages.
The Instructor Section is divided into 36 weeks of instruction with four lessons per week. You get detailed directions and scripted dialogue with suggested student responses in every lesson, so you can teach with confidence!
The Student Pages are the consumable portion of the workbook given to the student for their writing assignment. Perforated for easy removal, the Student Pages have plenty of lined space for your student’s writing. (These included pages are the same as the pages we also sell separately: Level 1 Student Pages.)
Do you have more than one student? When you purchase the Workbook, you have permission to copy (or print from the PDF) the Student Pages as many times as you need for use within your own family. But if you want to keep your Workbook intact, or to save yourself the trouble of lugging it to Kinko’s, you can simply purchase an additional set of Level 1 Student Pages.
If your child has unique needs or if you feel that the recommended grade level is not a good fit, look at the Writing With Ease, Diagnostic Evaluations. These are the Mastery Evaluations used when the student has completed a Level’s Workbook and will help you choose the right level for your student.
If you can’t decide between Writing with Ease Level 4 and starting our intermediate series: Writing with Skill, or if you are interested in an alternate progression for writing instruction, see Susan’s updated grade recommendations.
