It’s simple enough, really. If it had never been written, it could never be read. So much would have been lost, from then to now, if it had not been written. If the truth is not written, today, we may not have it tomorrow. Writing well is much more than using correct grammar and vocabulary, and it is one of the greatest challenges a student will face. It allows us to clearly express our thoughts, ideas, and beliefs. “Christians in particular should try to be the best communicators. They possess The Truth and need to articulate a Biblical worldview.” It is our job, as parents and educators, to teach our children how to write.
The publishers of God’s World News and WORLD magazine, together with education and media professionals, have developed an exciting *new writing curriculum. Write with WORLD is a two year writing curriculum geared for middle school. It adapts easily for grades 6 – 10.
Year ONE and year TWO each consist of a non-consumable Student Text, a Teacher’s Edition – including the full student text, and an annual web site access pass. The curriculum is completed, and the books are ready for shipment this summer, 2012. The final dynamics of the web site are being polished, giving students access to the education and encouragement of journalists, photojournalists, essayists, editors, authors, and professors.
“Write with WORLD concentrates on developing young writers who can think and express their thoughts through writing. Students using Write with WORLD are connected to other writers – WORLD journalists, writer’s from God’s World News, celebrated writing professors, and student authors. Students will benefit from these writer’s advice. They will respond to timely and thoughtful assignments that encourage them to discuss ideas and language with teachers. The potential for publication will energize students, giving them purpose and audience.”
Each unit is broken down into smaller lessons. Stimulating assignments, many relevant to today, are given. Small steps and achievements are acknowledged, built upon, corrected and improved along the way. This is not a – here’s the writing prompt – write your paper – have it corrected for errors – get a grade, good or bad – learn the next set of writing rules – here’s the next writing prompt – curriculum. Many of the developers of Write with WORLD have sat through similar, boring classes; so, they recognized the pitfalls to avoid. Grammar, vocabulary, structure, essays, narratives and compositions are included, but it never seems forced on the student. The students develop critical reading skills, learning to detect worldview clues in writing, and learning to write from the point of their own worldview. This curriculum is more conversational and feels almost interactive. My own reluctant writer’s were encouraged by their steady, easy progression. As the parent/educator, I think it is a remarkable approach and I’m excited to see how it will impact my children!
Write with WORLD, Full Curriculum, Year ONE or Year TWO can be purchased for $95 each.
Purchase both, Year ONE and Year TWO, Full Curriculum for $165.
