Remove the frustration from high school writing!
With The Power in Your Hands: Writing Nonfiction in High Schoolstudents learn what they need to know for high school and college writing. They'll write five different persuasive essays, including an SAT essay; navigate a comparison-and-contrast essay, a biography, a literary analysis, a research paper with MLA documentation; learn to write description; create narration essays; and more.
Written by the same author who wrote Apologia Educational Ministries' popular middle school writing curriculum Jump In!, this course is the natural next step for those who enjoy material presented in incremental steps with a c onversational tone. Explicitly Christian, the writing examples provide a number of samples based on conservative, pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, and creationist values. When examining moral/ethical appeals in essays, biblical values and scriptural support are used.
With over 100 daily lessons and complete instructions for 22 essays and reports, this is an engaging course students will enjoy-or at least not dread. The self-guided style will help homeschooled teens take more responsibility for their work and engage them in crafting written reports that they want to write. Easy-to-follow chapters feature bolded terms and important concepts, in-lesson examples that often use diagrams or other graphic elements, writing checklists, in-book practice assignments, and essay and longer writing assignments.
Perfect for your reluctant or skilled writer!

With clearly laid out lessons which are enjoyable to read and easy to understand, the text is a wonderful choice for homeschool families. I highly recommend this high school course along with the teacher's edition which makes evaluating the students' writing almost easy!
