Wordsmith Student teaches important writing fundamentals, is well-organized, and comes at a great price. We did not use the teacher's guide, and I do not think it is necessary. Although we have been satisfied, we keep leaving it and forgetting to do it. Perhaps this is the nature of composition books? If you purchase it, I recommend scheduling it for use during a single school year, and altering some of the compositions so your student can write about things he is learning in other subject areas.

Depending on a child's interest this can be very helpful in enlisting them in branching out into more creative writing. It worked for us as my girls enjoyed the lay-out of the presentation of the course. They thought it fun to be the newspaper reporter for a newspaper and get to write the news.
