The skill level of this program is for students just learning to write paragraphs, 2nd or 3rd grade, through the teen years, if they still do not have these skills. I taught 6th grade. The scope and sequence said my students should have this skill. 5% of them did. We started with paragraphs.
Beginning with persuasive, or opinion paragraphs, gives the advantage of higher interest for the writer. Once your child has mastered these skills, you can use this exact same structure for a descriptive paragraph, expository and 5 paragraph essay.
*If you are an adult and do not know how to write paragraphs-this is perfect for you as well.
