Fearless Writing introduces and engages students in various literary forms used in Sacred Writing, while also preserving a strong adherence to the Christian message conveyed by the texts and spiritual examples.
Our introductory lesson invites students to view the strong verbs and methods of comparison (simile and metaphor) used to convey the intended spiritual message. Then students learn to pump up the power of their writing using specific proper nouns. Next, your child will read examples of Biblical stories and retell them from a different point of view. Letter-writing skills are explored through an epistle and a careful consideration of the child’s observations about people. Metaphor and simile are often used in Sacred Writing and the following lessons honor this usage with encouragement for your child to invent his/her own figurative language to write his/her insights about the Sacred. The final lesson on theme will invigorate your child to write a lasting message based on a parable.
Fearless Writers of Sacred Writing will not forget that writing is fun! Joy in the creative process will foster your child’s continued commitment to be a Fearless Writer.
