Meaningful Composition

Last April, Ray and Donna Reish were Keynote speakers at the BC Christian Home Educators’ Convention in Kelowna.  Their workshops encouraged and inspired! And they generously donated their newest curriculum Meaningful Compositions to our Learning Commons!

Here is what they have to say about it:

The Meaningful Composition (MC) series is a multi-level writing program for students in grades two through twelve who desire to use character-based (and sometimes biblically-based) materials, themes, and subject matter, including, but not limited to, character
stories, biographies, science and weather/nature topics, animal information, Bible stories, and much more. (You may see the types of papers and assignments and content by looking at the two-week samples of each book below.

Additionally, MC uses many of our original methods that we have tested with one hundred to two hundred students every year for the past ten years. These methods work—whether they are Directed Brainstorming and Scene-by-Scene development for story writing or Outlining Cards and Bibliography Cards for Research Report writing or the Three P’s of Persuasion for Essay Writing.

We take students by the hand and leave nothing to chance! (These methods can also be found in our samples.)

Donna also has some video tutorials available: Video

Meaningful Composition – A Powerful Writing Program

Precept-Upon-Precept Approach to Writing
Now families who want to offer their children a rich, in-depth, precept-upon-precept approach to writing can use the new Meaningful Composition by Training For Triumph. With instructions from prewriting (outlining, finding source material, researching, and more) to rough draft writing to revising to final product writing, Meaningful Composition is a compilation of the “writing only” parts of Character Quality Language Arts.

Most Complete Writing Program Available
Using a “directed writing approach,” Meaningful Composition tells your child how much to write, what to put in each paragraph, etc., in a step-by-step format. Each book contains two levels so that more advanced students in each level are expected to write more details and complete more revisions than the beginners. Meaningful Composition is not for every child, but for the child who loves to write and for the college–bound, you won’t find any more complete program.

We now have Levels 4 through 12 available in our physical L4U library.  Search for Meaningful Composition by Series to find all of the levels.

This is a great way to “try before you buy” a curriculum!  You have 6 weeks to explore this great resource, and you can renew online if there are no bookings on it!
