This third volume of the groundbreaking writing series prepares students for advanced work in rhetoric and composition. Straightforward, detailed instructions lead students through brainstorming, researching, and constructing original compositions.
Building on the first two levels of Writing With Skill, Level 3 reinforces skills in original composition and introduces new skills in researching, organizing, and writing expository essays. Models from great writers provide inspiration; assignments in history, science, biography and literature expand the student’s horizons. This third level is marked by a focus on writing about cause and effect, as well as more advanced instruction in literary criticism, science writing, descriptions, and paragraph construction. Time-tested classical techniques—the imitation and analysis of great writers—combine with original essay assignments. Along with the accompanying Instructor Guide, this Level Three Student Workbook provides a complete year of advanced middle-grade writing instruction.
