Writing is a skill which is developed and fostered across the curriculum. Along with writing being a part of all content instruction, it is also taught as a separate subject. Starting in First Grade, students begin the process of formal writing through organization, style, and content development. The general approach is a traditional classical approach. In this approach, the students are given content to react to rather than attempting to pull content from themselves.
Grammar is taught across the curriculum. In the lower grades, grammar is taught through reading selections and self-correction of writing. In Secondary, a formal grammar unit is presented on learning how to correct English grammar.
Unlike, History and Literature in Secondary, writing is scoped and sequenced based on grade-level rather than the normal Year Cycle.
