Trees Literature & Composition

Here are six pieces of writing about Trees, and six different writing assignments to go with them! Topics include: two contrasting poems about well-loved trees, a description of the beauty of the fallen leaves of beech trees, a first-hand account of traipsing through a tropical forest, a portion of the oldest known poem about Robin Hood in which he happily returns to the ‘grene wode’, a comparison of Pine and Fir trees, and a renowned Japanese fairy tale about the sound of the wind in the trees. Writing assignments vary – from describing a special moment linked to a tree to contemplating the beauty of trees’ levas in a descriptive paragraph, to writing in Middle English (or translating a bit of Middle English into today’s English) to writing a short story that includes a character who uses some part of a tree for clothing. An image of two Pine Trees (Anonymous) 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.
