  • Homeschool Writing Curriculum (and not just for homeschoolers) covering Creative Writing – Descriptive Writing – Informative and Expository Writing

8 Things Every Home School Mom and/or Writing Teacher is looking for in a Writing Curriculum:

1) Ease of Use - (Minimal teacher preparation and easy, step-by-step directions for the teacher and student.)

2) Activities that spark interest in reluctant and inexperienced writers.

3) Thoroughness in teaching how to write every genre and not just one such as only descriptive paragraphs or essays.

4) Specific grading criteria or checklists for grading each piece of writing.

5) Assignments that don't take hours each day or week to complete.

6) Testimonials from parents and students that the curriculum really does work.

7) Affordability

8) Use for all grade levels in a household.

These 8 characteristic are all found in Write with the Best, our inexpensive two volume program that can be used by all of the members of your family. Each volume can actually be used as a stand-alone volume, although we generally suggest that you use Volume 1 first. The exception to this method would be that you have an older, gifted writer who is skilled in all the ways of descriptive writing in many genres. Volume 1 will teach your children how to beautifully master descriptive writing skills in nine genres and is for students from third to twelfth grades. It sells for $24.95. Read more about or order Write with the BestVolume 1. Volume 2 builds on the descriptive writing learned and developed through Volume 1 and will create in your children the skills necessary for wonderful creative writing and superb expository writing in eight separate fields. It is for students from sixth to twelfth grades. The effectiveness of this program is demonstrated in the fact that it is also used by various private and public schools around the country. Volume 2 sells for $29.95. Order or read more about the features of Write with the BestVolume 2.
