Write Your Roots Student Book
The Write Your Roots Student Book contains all 30 steps, each one containing exercises to learn, practice, and apply the skills while writing a book chronicling your family’s stories and history.
Another year-long writing project from Carole Thaxton. Learn language arts while writing your family history.
A one-year project for grades 5-12 that is easy because it is a series of short stories. The stories are based on real facts, so less imagination is necessary. The worktext is divided into 30 steps, which is designed for one step per week, which fulfills requirements for a full year of English composition. Each text has three sections: learn, practice/prepare and apply. If your child can write a short story, he is ready for Write Your Roots. During the year the basic student will write 12 stories that will be revised and tweaked several times for excellent writing. Paperback, 226 pages.
