    Where do you go after ULW Book 3 since Books 4 and 5 have not been published? Any recommendations?

    Thank you!



    My 9th grader is still plugging through book 2 and I am hoping book 4 will be out by the time we need it, so I don’t know how helpful I can be. We are using Elements of Style workbook right now, also teaching different writing formats as they come up in essay exam questions. Just using internet or books I have around for that. I am also going through Teaching the Classics for myself, it isn’t writing of course, but it helps me to be able to point out literary devices when we encounter them. Karen Glass has a book called Know and Tell which helps with what to teach when. Also the SCM Hearing and Reading, Telling and Writing. Oh we are also going through a poetry book called The Roar on the Other Side, which is super fun. Not very helpful right. I have invested in so many writing “programs” that I cannot stand. One I really like is The Power in Your Hands. I don’t use it lesson by lesson. But when I need a particular type of essay I can pull it out and work through those specific lessons. Good luck. For me, writing is the hardest subject to teach CM style. I feel I need hand holding, but curriculums are never very CM in my opinion. Cannot wait for ULW 4 and 5 to come out.


    My high schoolers are still in book 3.  😊 One graduates this spring, but the other has a couple years left.  We’ll probably keep reviewing parts of speech with parsing and focus on writing.  We may try a cm friendly writing book like Elements of Style or Writing to Learn.  And I’ll still have the rubrics from ULW 3 to work with.

    Our (SCM) recommendations are to have your high school student parse sentences from his school books occasionally and work through the essay and research paper portion of Beyond the Book Report Season 3 by Analytical Grammar.  Once he/she has completed the essay and research paper, we suggest asking for essays regularly and perhaps 1 research paper a year.
