    I have used Writeshop 1,2 and several of the younger levels. The teachers manual is not laid out very well, but the product and information you get is wonderful. I continue to use this year after year.

    Other reviews praised this program as a methodical approach to learning writing, comparing it to math. This appealed to me! Yes, it is methodical. But it I am finding its methods to be impractical.

    The teacher's manual does not have all the student pages. To properly teach WriteShop, I either need to have an extra student book for myself, or must borrow from the children. There are multiple sections in the teacher's manual. Today, to correct a lesson, I had to find Lesson 3 in one section, and Lesson 3 in another section! It would be much simpler if the teacher's manual had students' pages with the answers right in them, and in the same order as the student book.

    However, I appreciate the writing checklists that accompany each lesson, one list per draft, giving the students a clear picture of what is expected from them. The composition evaluation checklist is valuable to me when it comes time to mark a piece of writing.

    If the writers would rearrange the teacher manual so all the needed pages are in the same order that they are required, with the exception of frequently used items like word lists, this program would be much easier to use. I will continue to use it only because I have spent a fair amount of money to buy WriteShop for three students.
