First and foremost, of all the writing curriculums I have perused as a homeschooling parent, the Writing with Ease: Strong Fundamentals series is superlative. The purpose of the curriculum is to prepare students for advanced work in rhetoric and composition. In theory, the curriculum is student directed, but in reality it is teacher directed. The length of time for each lesson will vary based upon the student’s as well as the parent’s writing skills. As a gentle reminder, the purpose of curriculum is to serve the student and teaching parent. The author states the following in the curriculum introduction: You should feel free to adapt the assignments and pace to fit your student.
Before attempting Writing with Skill Level 1, I would highly recommend the following language arts sequence:

First Language Lessons Grades 1-4
Writing with Ease Grades 5-8
Writing with Skill Grades 9-12

Overall, we have been pleased with Ms. Bauer''s logical approach to writing instruction. Our child has transformed from being a reluctant writer into a confident writer.

This is a very good writing program. The student workbook textbook has 36 lessons. One a week, working on each lesson four days a week.
I don''t know why people are dismissing the instructor textbook. It has explanation in how to help the student when he doesn''t understand. I find it very helpful to me. When my kid has a question, I can just go and read the explanation a help him out. The instructor textbook has excerpts of the readings, no the whole readings.
My student doesn''t complain and does the work independently as it is intended for.
We''re using the level I this year (7th grade) and planning on using the level II in 8th grade. I wouldn''t recommend level I for a 5th or 6th grader, unless the student has his grammar down, he is a very, very good reader and his reading comprehension is excellent.

This could have been truncated to just have the answers in my opinion...seems like they had to justify the price. It''s literally a duplicate copy with just extra blurb answers. Still happy I purchased it but seems like overkill in my opinion.

We''ve done the entire Writing with Ease series in our home school. When I discovered the Writing with Skill books, I was thrilled! Mrs. Bauer''s writing program starts (in the first Writing with Ease) with having a first grader copy a sentence. This Writing with Skill book (for the fifth or sixth grader) leads them to the point of doing their own narration, composition, beginning literary criticism, and a final research project. We haven''t started school yet this year, but I''m excited, knowing there''s such a fun and instructive writing program in place. My daughter loves to write but really needs the structure and information this curriculum provides. Thank you, Susan Wise Bauer!

I really wish it had the reading passages that are in the student workbook so that I could silently read along. I''m going to buy a used copy of the student workbook, and lug out 2 books for myself at every lesson. I realize that had the passages been included, the teacher''s manual would be 2 books for the whole semester. However, only one would be in use at a time.

Disappointed
Reviewed in the United States on May 13, 2020
I really had high hopes for this program. My kids did not enjoy this program. To cumbersome to follow. The literary pieces included were not of the highest quality for a child at this stage. Maybe for younger children, but again, the format is a major issue.

We are half way through our year using WWS 1 and I really do think it has to be one of the best writing programs out there for 5-6th graders (or even older than that). I did realize about 3-4 weeks in that I cannot simply just hand this to my son, however, and expect great results. It is written to the student, but I decided it was best for us to talk about the assignment--especially when it was time to practice the topos. Also, sometimes we do a little more research than what is there so that he has a better understanding what he''s writing about. I would say my son is a natural writer, and I might save this for 6th grade for my younger son for whom writing doesn''t come quite so easily. I would also say that I feel like this is a fairly challenging program for a 5th grader.
