Outlining questions??

Postby pata » Tue May 24, 2011 5:28 am

How does CW teach outlining and when does it teach those skills?

More specifically when does it teach outlining like this...I. paragraph 1 with A, B, C supporting points and so forth. I have Aesop, so I know that it addresses key word outlining, but I use the WTM and I'm wondering if the higher levels of CW will help me to teach traditional outlining. Also, can you tell me does CW ever have the student outline their own ideas and then write from that? Thanks for any answers you can give :)!

The answers are yes, and yes, and yes.

1. We start with outlining simple stories 3-4th grade
2. We move on to outlining more complicated stories. 5-6th
3. By Diogenes, we use outlines to write about simple ideas 7-8th
4. By Herodotus and Plutarch students are outlining their own ideas for essays 9-10th
5. By the end (Demosthenes) the students outline and write whole research papers 11-12th.
