Reasoning and Writing is called a language program, partly because it does not fit into any of the other subjects. It's not the same as reading, math, social studies or any other class you're used to hearing about. Even so, the skills taught are the ones that are most useful in real life. The program teaches children to listen carefully and follow directions exactly. They learn to understand what they hear, reason logically, and explain things clearly. Ultimately, these are the skills that allow children to make important decisions - decisions like what to buy and who to listen to.
Reasoning and Writing C sets very high goals for students and teachers. Its purpose is to teach students how to write good sentences, paragraphs and stories - ones that make sense and don't have mistakes. Good writing requires students to use many skills: grammar, punctuation, paragraphing and organizing ideas, to name a few. Level C teaches every skill by breaking it into small parts. This means that students learn to write slowly but surely. If writing is taught carefully, students are less likely to pick up bad habits.
Students write sentences in most of the lessons. For every piece of writing, they are expected to follow directions exactly, check their work, and correct any mistakes they find (or their teacher finds). As with other levels of Reasoning and Writing, skills are cumulative. Once they learn a skill, students use it for the rest of the program. Below is a list of the topics children study in Level C.
Mechanics-Capital Letters and Punctuation
Inferring-Writing What the Picture Doesn't Show
