The flagship WriteShop program sets your teens on a course for success as you teach fundamental composition and editing skills in a step-by-step manner.
Building on WriteShop 1 in addition to teaching descriptive narration, narrative voice, and point of view, WriteShop II offers six comprehensive lessons in essay writing. Students learn to write and edit opinion essays, compare/contrast essays, and essays that describe or define. Special focus is placed on writing timed essays.
Recommended for grades 8-12. Most students will need to complete WriteShop I first, but an older student with a strong foundation in basic writing skills can launch right in to WriteShop II.
Teacher's Manual for WriteShop I and II. WriteShop II is not a stand-alone book. The Teacher's Manual is a critical resource, containing many instructional activities needed for introducing and/or explaining key concepts. (Note that this information is NOT always present in the student book.) In the Teacher's Manual, you will also find dozens of essay topics to use with the Persuasive Writing & Essay Unit (the student workbook does not contain any of the essay topics needed for these lessons).
Thesaurus. A good thesaurus is essential for WriteShop students and highly recommend for use with the WriteShop program.
