The Complete Writer: Level 1 Workbook for Writing with Ease (The Complete Writer)

A workbook to accompany the acclaimed series on teaching writing, from the author of The Well-Trained Mind.

In Writing with Ease, Susan Wise Bauer lays out an alternative plan for teaching writing, one that combines the best elements of old-fashioned writing instruction with innovative new educational methods. The Complete Writer workbooks (each sold separately) complement this plan with lessons, student worksheets, and teacher instructions for every day of writing instruction. Each covers one year of study.

Used along with Writing with Ease, The Complete Writer, Level One (first in a four-volume set) complete the elementary-grade writing curriculum.
