WriteShop Level 1
WriteShop is one of the most parent-friendly courses for teaching high-school-level writing with confidence. The detailed Teacher’s Manual clearly leads a parent from brainstorming to the final draft with examples, detailed lesson plans, and step-by-step instructions.
Teens will appreciate the clear, incremental assignments that give them a chance to practice various kinds of writing, such as creative, expository, narrative, and persuasive.
WriteShop’s learn-practice-do approach helps new skills become habits. Additionally, WriteShop focuses on clarity, conciseness, and vibrant vocabulary, which sets it apart from drearier writing courses.
One of the hallmarks of the WriteShop program is its customized Writing Skills Checklist, so teens know what to look for when editing and refining their assignments. Because WriteShop’s concrete instructions tell your teen exactly what to do, he’ll never have to wonder how long his paper should be or what content he should include.
Note: Writeshop Level 1 Student Workbook is not bound but is a shrinkwrapped bundle of 3-hole punched pages.
WriteShop I offers different schedules in the coursework, but typically, students complete one lesson every two weeks to finish in an academic year.

Review by Thrift Schooling:
”Even though WriteShop Level 1 is found in the tenth grade kit, it spans a wide range of ages and can be customized to meet the needs of older students of any skill level—which I love. I decided to use this program this year with my middle school daughter, and she has had no problem keeping up.”
