Practice your literature and composition skills with a creature everyone loves – bears!
Here are six pieces of writing about bears, and six different writing assignments to go with them! Themes include: a Latvian folktale, present-day information about Polar Bears, a hunter’s true account of Grizzly behavior, a Native American bear legend, a children’s bear story and astronomical information about the ‘Great Bear’ of the night sky. Writing assignments vary – from writing a short children’s story to writing a poem in iambic pentameter, from inventing a legend to composing a pamphlet-style text. A drawing of a wild bear is included to be used as decoration on the student’s notebook.
Literature & Composition collections are suitable for students who are ready to read and study different types of literature in small quantities. For example, instead of an entire novel or scholarly work, a small sample of each (which can stand on its own) will be presented. This way, the intermediate student has an opportunity to stretch their reading abilities without being discouraged. Each book contains six different writing samples that share a common theme. The writing assignments vary in length and are intended to inspire the student to try writing in different forms and styles.
