For grades 4-8.
Writers in Residence™provides kids with a biblical framework to think about word and communicate effectively in writing. The culture wants to rob your children of their God-given voices by turning them into passive consumers who can express themselves only in abbreviations and emoticons, but Writers in Residence will help them tap into their creativity and unleash their voices for God’s glory! This powerful learning tool includes:
- • Stimulating exercises that build grammar skills and help young writers make dynamic word choices
- • Inspirational interviews with professional Christian authors
- • A detailed 32-week lesson plan that makes planning and teaching a breeze
- • Evaluation rubric for every assignment that takes the guesswork out of evaluating your child’s writing Writers in Residence, Volume 1: Apprentice is a great way for children to build a personal writing portfolio that will serve as a keepsake and inspiration as they begin the journey to writing mastery.
