Developed to give students advanced skills, such as recognizing and using persuasive language, writing reports, and developing character in creative pieces.

Students will learn the process of giving others their thoughts in written form through three areas: creative, research and reports, and explanatory. Every exercise will guide them in the development of communication skills they need.

Topics addressed in this one-year course include:

  • Recognizing the three points of view writers use
  • Describing what has been seen over a period of days and writing a scientific report
  • Understanding the organization of an explanatory exposition
  • Developing effective characters and conflict in creative writing
  • Identifying common literary devices in the Bible
  • Understanding why literary devices are used

A suggested schedule is provided, as well as worksheets that are three-hole punched and perforated, and the addition of a reading and literature component helps students look more deeply into the Bible and other books they select.

Recommended for: Grades 7-10 / 1 Year / 1 English credit

Great for relunctant writers
Review by Angela
We have been using Writing Strands for a few years now. This year the reading portion departs from the Bible and focuses on reading the Pilgrim's Progress. It has been done in small bite-size pieces so as to not overwhelm my daughter. The lessons are clear and give a good direction on what they are supposed to be doing.
Review by Ruth
My daughter really enjoyed this and it has enhanced her writing skills. One of her favorites being when she learned a bit about sociology. Though sometimes the assignments felt a little vague, she had fun completely them!
Review by Sarah
I purchased this book with the whole 10th grade bundle, and didn't look at it closer until it was in hand. So glad it was a part of the bundle, I was concerned that I would have to look for a book for the reading part but it is a FREE download!
Love this
Review by Courtney
I absolutely love this book and love how it falls along with the pilgrims progress story as well. My son absolutely avoids having to do any type of creative writing but he has been able to work through this without resistance.
Writing for students who don't like writing
Review by Cabin Life
This curriculum has very clear and understandable directions for each activity. The writing lessons are very specific and tell the student exactly what to write about.
