All areas of language arts are incorporated into classical-style, sequential writing lessons. The books develop skills sequentially, but do not correspond to specific grade levels. Regardless of age, students should start at the beginning and progress through the series at their own pace. Lessons will take an hour or more each day and are parent-intensive. The core book for each level provides weekly and daily routines, detailed instructions, tips for completing the writing projects, and planning help. Student books and instructor’s guides are optional but helpful. Consumable student workbooks include weekly models and workspace.
