Additional student handouts are necessary for families with children who will be viewing the SICC DVD course in a co-op setting. Available as hard copies or in e-book form.
Prerequisites: This course assumes that the student has completed the Student Writing Intensive Level C or Student Writing Intensive Continuation Course Level B, or has had equivalent instruction.
For a long time it was Andrew’s dream to teach and record a set of classes just like he would teach if he could be in your town each week. While the Student Writing Intensive has helped thousands of families around the world, some parents want or need additional direct instruction for their students. This is that course.
Contents: Recorded live, this series picks up right where the Student Writing Intensive Level C left off. Students may continue to use their same notebook and charts, learning new models and techniques not previously presented in the Student Writing Intensive. New charts and models are provided in the student packet for students who would like to freshen their notebook. A new binder may be purchased here.
In addition to the recorded sessions on 9 DVDs, included e-books contain the teacher’s manual, student samples, the original handouts used on the recorded lessons. An expanded student book is provided in a packet (loose-leaf and three-hole punched) which provide everything you need to teach this course over one to two years. The teacher’s manual provides direction for planning the course. For class details and options for shortening or lengthening the course, read the instructions provided in the Teacher’s Manual sample.
Who should purchase this course? This course is not meant to be a replacement for a real teacher using the Teaching Writing: Structure and Style program. It is designed for students who enjoyed the Student Writing Intensive classes so much they just want more, for families or teachers who want to further improve their teaching of writing and would benefit from exposure to a more comprehensive set of demonstration lessons, or for students whose primary writing instruction does not include Structure & Style, and who wish to supplement what they learn in school.
Should you purchase this level? High school level students who have completed the Student Writing Intensive Level C are ready for the Student Writing Intensive Continuation Course Level C. But if your high schooler is a reluctant writer, you may want to consider doing the Student Writing Intensive Continuation Course Level B first.
