Bible Heroes: Writing Lessons in Structure and Style is a foundational IEW theme-based book designed for students in first and second grades (Level P) but easily adaptable for students through fifth grade (Level A).
It is assumed that parents and teachers have purchased the Institute for Excellence in Writing’s Teaching Writing: Structure and Style DVD Seminar with Seminar Workbook.
This Student Book is filled with true stories of great men and women of the Bible. They are people we can admire because they showed traits such as goodness, faith, courage, love, humility, and thankfulness. They inspire us. They are “Bible Heroes.”
In these lessons, you will learn how to write with structure and with style. You will write exciting stories, reports, and creative essays. You will also enjoy a variety of activities and games that will help you write with style. You will be surprised at how much fun you can have writing!
The Teacher’s Manual includes more detailed instructions for each lesson. In it you will find a scope and sequence chart, ideas for discussing each hero and virtue, answers to review questions, sample key word outlines and brainstorming pages, instructions for the games and activities, copies of the checklists, and copies of the games boards.
This Student Book contains all the pages students will need in order to complete each assignment. Each lesson begins with instructions that the teacher or parent should read to the student. Lessons pages also contain gray boxes with notes to teachers, but more detailed instructions are contained in the Teacher’s Manual (TM)
