"Discover How To Give Your Student A Biblical
Worldview As He Learns To Write Well"
For the teacher, mom or homeschool student who wants to interact with classic books by examining living ideas.
One of our highest priorities in homeschooling our children was to give them a Biblical worldview...so they could think critically and think Biblically. IEW has done it again by bringing together their structure & style basis for writing with David Quine's Worldview Primer.
Both Teaching Writing: Structure & Style and Starting Points contain a critically important concept in common - asking questions in the process of learning. (If you've listened to any of my talks, you probably heard me say, "the quality of questions you ask determine the quality of your life.") By asking questions of Scripture, both courses train students to express a Biblical worldview in verbal and written forms.
This resource makes teaching Biblical worldview EASY. Save yourself some timeby using these lessons already created for you. Spend your time doing what is important.
When your students complete this course, they will be able to:
Connect Teaching Writing strategies with any given assignment
Use the writing assignment as a way to understand the material at a deper level
Interact with a book by examining how an author expresses an idea
Communicate an idea by playing with how it is presented
Trace an idea through Scripture, other literary works, and history
