Review: Write with WORLD

Write with World is a brand new writing program from the creators of World Magazine and God's World News.  It is a two-year curriculum designed for use in grades 6-9.  It is also excellent for older students who have limited writing experience. 

Write with WORLD exposes students to:

  • reading and critical thinking that develop discernment
  • contemporary subjects and professional guidance to pique interest
  • flexible exercises to build confidence and skill for using today's new media
  • a thoughtful and meaningful Christian worldview

Let me tell you, there's some excitement in our house over this one. I haven't had to tell my 14 year old to do her writing at all.  She's happy to do it. I grant you, she likes to write; but, she is really enjoying this. Emily is using this product independently. That's a big plus for this busy homeschool momma. It's set up in a kid-friendly manner. The text is easy to read and understand. She spends ten to fifteen minutes doing one capsule or section a day. She told me that it is helpful in making her sentences more engaging for the reader. Emily thinks that the age range should be about 12 to 15 years old. 
My son, 12, will begin this curriculum next year.  I anticipate being much more hands-on with him.  At that time, I will no doubt be using the teacher's edition in more depth.  The teacher's text is a wider book that includes the exact student text. The introduction explains the objectives and how to evaluate. Teaching helps are included throughout the book alongside the student's text.   Michael is very excited; because, he has been reading the World Magazine (yes, the adult version) for a couple of years now.  I am hopeful that this curriculum will be the one that changes his mind about writing  and fully engages him. 
I encourage you to take some time, click the links and discover Write with World for yourself.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.
