Product Description

Flexible and creative, WriteShop is an ideal homeschool writing program!

WriteShop lessons give students 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, important techniques of style, and self-editing. Students learn to choose vivid, descriptive words and vary their sentences in order to build strong paragraphs. 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!

Students write one composition over a two-week period, revising it twice. Incremental in approach, exercises are designed to be approached consecutively, building upon previously learned material. Students edit their papers methodologically, using a Writing Skills Checklist tailored to the individual lesson.

The WriteShop 1 Student Book is also comprised of a softcover and loose leaf pages. While written directly to the student, the sold-separately WriteShop Teacher's Manual for WriteShop I & II guide is still needed to teach the course, as the teacher's guide contains the teacher-specific instructions, keys, and evaluation notes. In this student book, lessons provide examples, lesson directions, and exercises----of which some can be completed in-book, if desired, and some which must be completed out-of-book. Copying and Dictation exercises may be assigned by the student, or WriteShop offers the sold-separately WriteShop I Copying and Dictation Exercises booklet.

4th Edition. Recommended for the average student in grade 7-10, or a bright 5th or 6th grader who's working with a parent; average 5th or 6th grade students may also spread the course out over two years. At the pace of one lesson in two weeks, students will finish both WriteShop I & II in two years.

    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.
