Discover and be amazed at the wonders of the ancient world while learning to write with structure and style!
This new edition of Ancient History-Based Writing Lessons offers writing topics that explore the civilizations of Sumer, Egypt, Israel, Babylon, Greece, Rome, Asia Minor, and Asia—the people’s ideas, traditions, systems of government, feats, and wonderful skills. IEW’s structural units 1–9 are taught in order; elements of style are introduced gradually. A set of creatively illustrated vocabulary cards is included. The words, chosen to work easily in the writing assignments, expand students’ vocabularies and add sophistication to their compositions. Acquiring facts about the ancient world while learning to write well has never been so enjoyable!
These lessons are designed to be used by an instructor who has been through the Teaching Writing: Structure & Style seminar, either live or on DVD
Perfect for homeschoolers, homeschool co-ops, tutors, and hybrid schools, this theme-based writing curriculum supports parents and teachers in teaching writing to elementary and middle school students (grades 4–7).
