TOS Review ~ Write with World

Photobucket

For the last few weeks we have had the opportunity to review a brand spanking new writing curriculum called, Write with World.  It is so new that it is not even available for purchase yet to the general public (but it will be in Summer 2012).Write with WORLD was written by the publisher’s of God’s World News and World Magazine. Developed by educational and media professionals, Write with World strives to help you to effectively teach writing with confidence. This curriculum will help to train and inspire your students to become proficient communicators.

With the help of Write with WORLD your child will be exposed to:

  • reading that develops discernment
  • contemporary subjects and professional guidance to pique interest
  • flexible exercises to build confidence and skill for using today’s new media
  • a thoughtful and meaningful Christian worldview

PhotobucketAs a member of The Old Schoolhouse Crew our family received the first year of the  2 year program, which is recommended for middle-school students.  Madison being the aspiring novelist in the family is just the right age to try out this program.Year 1 materials include a teacher and student book. The student book has 16 key lessons divided into 4 units, covering topics such as:
•Writing fundamentals
•Narratives
•Reporting
•Reviewing
•Critique and opinion
•Concepts of comparative and critical reading

The teacher book thoroughly explains each unit and has multiple assignment choices to fit the needs of you and your student(s). Click HERE for a link to the table of contents and HERE for a sample lesson. The student book is non-consumable, so your student(s) will need to use a notebook to record their work. Having multiple children makes this one of many of my favorite features about this program.No need to buy multiple books to reuse this program, thus in turn helping my budget :-) 
Write With WORLD also gives students who use this program an extra incentive of being able to submit samples of their writing for possible publication on the Write With WORLD web site. That is a great incentive for aspiring writers like mine!

The appeal and relevance of working with current, real-world topics and news stories.
Instead of stale, canned writing prompts, lessons are coupled to real-life experiences, current news stories, and other changing topics to add interest and relevance to the assignments and examples. In many lessons, students can choose the subjects that interest and motivate them.

Write With World sells for $95 for Year 1or you can purchase both the first and second years of this program for just $165. Remember, when you purchase you also get  access to the website coming in the fall of 2012. With a very Christ-Centered, God-Created tone this writing program is definitely worth taking a look at!  Want to know what my fellow Crewmates thought about this program?  Click over here and read through some of the 100 reviews and see if this is right for your family.
