The Introduction to Composition Teacher Key contains the answers to the Introduction to Composition Student Guide.
Memoria Press introduction to Composition course focuses on the concepts of narration, dictation, and copy work. Reading passages are taken from Farmer Boy, Charlotte’s Web, A Bear Called Paddington, and Mr. Popper’s Penguins, with supplemental lessons from The Moffats. Students are given guided questions to help them formulate a summary of the passage they have read. After giving an oral summary of their reading, their written work consists of a written summary and copying a couple of sentences from dictation. The goal of this first writing course is to help students become more proficient in listening and writing skills, a great preparation for the Memoria Press writing program, Classical Composition. Introduction to Composition is a year-long writing course that goes along perfectly with our Third Grade Literature Guides, but can be used independently as well.
