The Best Homeschool Resources All in One Place!
When looking for homeschool writing programs, you will find that there are quite a few programs to choose from. One that I reviewed recently is called The Writing Course. It is written by a homeschool dad and seems very thorough and comprehensive, yet easy to use and implement.
When you get all the downloads for this homeschool writing curriculum, you will want to open the "Read First" pdf file and look over that. Then you can look at the workbook and ebook which is just 65 pages. The workbooks contains 18 lessons based on the 12 secrets of writing.
This course is taken from years of home tutoring students and also from a transcript that was done on a half day writing seminar. It is written in a very readable manner and covers lots of topics from punctuation to how to review and correct writing. There are lots of bonuses included in this course too including the Insiders Guide to College Success. There are Bible references and homeschool references in this book but they are very well done.
Here are some steps the author suggests you take when using this course:
Although I didn't get to listen to all the audios in this homeschool writing program, I feel this is a very good course that any high school (or motivated junior high) student can use with ease. If they wanted to spread it out over a year, then they could do one lesson every two weeks, or they could complete it in half a year. The parent can just check up on the student to make sure they are staying on track, but otherwise the parent doesn't have to teach writing. Dr. Lybrand takes care of all that for them!
There are also question and answer teleseminars that you will have access to if you purchase The Writing Course. You can listen to previous seminars or participate in current seminars. What a great way to follow up on a great writing course!
Right now you can get the first 3 lessons of this course for free at The Writing Course. Take advantage of this now because I don't know how much longer it will be available.
