At first glance, this curriculum is well laid out and detailed. There are three different levels available: Level 1 Sentence to Paragraph Writing for suggested ages 11-13, Level 2 Paragraph Writing for suggested ages 12-15, and Level 3 Essay Writing for suggested ages 14-17. Each level has step by step lesson plans and can be used for one or two years, depending on the speed at which you go through the material. There are also worksheets included with the instruction book that will help with learning the different facets of essay writing.
This curriculum is ideally suited for use in a co-op setting, however, it is also suited for use with just one student as well. Rebecca Celsor, the author of The Write Foundation, created this material while using it to teach a writing co-op class. She includes examples, checklists and grading system, as well as many more helps. Essay Writing incorporates creative writing, along with the more formal essay writing, too.
