Kelley Matton5 Stars Out Of 5September 30, 2010Kelley MattonJensen's Format Writing is a wonderful resource that WILL prepare your child to write high quality research papers. While poetry and creative writing are not covered, the step by step process of writing research paragraphs, then essays, then reports is one of the best I have ever seen. I highly recommend it.
Susan McClean5 Stars Out Of 5June 12, 2009Susan McCleanI have homeschooling for 14 years, and had never found a product for writing that actually explained and taught the process in an incremental and manageable way until Format Writing. My son's essay writing went from a laborious effort to skill - real skill in constructing well-written and formatted paragraphs and essays. His college application essays were successful. He has just finished his first year at an academically rigorous liberal arts college and was well-equipped for the assignments.
Charlotte5 Stars Out Of 5February 3, 2009CharlotteMy child went from suffering through writing a paragraph in an hour to enjoying writing a paragraph in less than 10 minutes. She can write now. This book breaks down the process of writing so than anyone can do it.
Valerie Smyth4 Stars Out Of 5January 26, 2009Valerie SmythWe haven't gotten very far into it, but just from looking through it, it is going to be a good fit for our family. We had tried another program which was supposedly for high school-but it was way below what we were currently doing. I'm glad I found this and I plan to use more of Jensen's writing/grammar for Jr. high with my youngest!
Jonine2 Stars Out Of 5December 17, 2008JonineI would have returned this book in an instant if I hadn't already thrown away my receipt. The description of the product gives you an excellent idea of what you can expect from the book. If you are looking for something to help with creative writing this book does not offer much help. It does however live up to its title when it says "format." This book is just formats for different types of papers and essays. Something I can find online anytime.
Q: Can this book be shared by 2 students or would it be better for each to have their own book?
Yes, it's possible to use this book for more than one student since most of the material is instructional. Students could do the assigned exercises on separate paper.
Q: Is it necessary to purchase the DVD that goes with the text Jensen's Format Writing?
No, the DVD is an optional supplement to the book, which supports and expands on the concepts taught.
