At last! A composition curriculum that meets the needs of both student and teacher! Teachers love WriteShop! This flexible writing program is ideal for home schoolers, classrooms, or co-ops. So whether you teach at home or in a Christian school, offer a weekly class, or tutor privately, WriteShop helps seasoned teachers and insecure parents alike tackle junior high- and high school-level writing with confidence. You'll love the detailed teacher lesson plans and step-by-step student instructions WriteShop offers.

WriteShop provides other helpful tools teachers and parents look for in a top-notch writing course. You'll find all sorts of resources for teaching, editing, evaluating, and grading writing, including individualized checklists, evaluation forms, writing examples, and tips for objective grading.

WriteShop sets students on a course for success. The lessons give them a chance to practice various kinds of writing, including creative writing, expository writing, and narrative writing. Assignments teach descriptive and informative paragraphs as well as first-and third-person narratives. The writing course also teaches students important techniques of style and self-editing. With each lesson, they learn and practice new skills, apply them to their current writing project, and edit and revise the composition several times. By the end of the lesson--after brainstorming, writing, editing, and revising--they'll have a polished paper to be proud of!

The prepackaged Basic Set contains one Teacher's Manual and one WriteShop I student workbook. Student workbooks are consumable. Purchase an extra WriteShop I or WriteShop II book for each additional student
