The Homeschool Writing Course System - You don't have to train yourself. The Course is 21 audio lessons, plus a workbook, plus a transcript of the course. Print the workbook, play the audios, look at their notes and exercises...and watch the transformation! It also comes with the Essay Course (for older students...around 14 and up), which has 18 lessons and a number of instant templates to use to create an outline in under 2 minutes. These should be used yearly with each student. And, because of the design of the course, it's a new experience every year as the principles settle into the student's heart and habits. It is clearly about learning by writing, but it is also about how to think about writing for a lifetime of confidence.The Online Videos - You will have access to 14 videos that explain all of the principles involved in curing reluctance in young writers (and old ones too!). We also have included our popular 'over the shoulder look' at EXACTLY how to give feedback / grade a student's writing to give the most help. Instant Access and Backup - You will have both courses fully down-loadable for your immediate use. You can make CDs or put the lessons on your iPod. Sometimes stuff happens and things get lost...no problem, we will renew your link to your writing courses whenever you need it. 6 Full Hours of Live Call in Sessions - These sessions were live and included a short lesson along with Q&A from other owners of The Writing Course. You will have complete access to the archive of these live sessions. Occasionally we have a live call-in session to add to these lessons...but, most of your questions are answered by using the course itself. Nonetheless, these sessions help clarify, refine, and encourage you. The Guarantee - Can an online course really guarantee that it will show you how to teach kids to write (and like it)? No one else we know of dares to guarantee a writing course. You will have 100 days to decide if The Writing Course is right for you. All we ask is that your student actually go through the 21 powerful lessons (about 1/2 hour per lesson), fill in the workbook & exercises (easy), and send us a copy—which is only fair. You'll have your refund process within 48 hours. The Price - NOT $127 for everything, including the right to use it with the whole family, is still a bargain. When we say we will show you how to teach kids to write, we mean all of your kids, but with the one-time purchase of our course for the whole family. As a parent myself, I know how costly it can be to buy material for each child for each year...which can really add up. I want to make this as easy as possible—one price for the whole family, forever. There are no additional purchases necessary, and you probably won't need to pay your tutor anymore. If you do the math per child...or the math per year (of most curriculum)...or the cost of a tutor. So, we hope you see our Writing Course on how to teach kids to write is a bargain. Plus, since it is fully online and down-loadable, we've been able to reduce the price from our original price of $299. Here are a few comments from appreciative homeschool Writing Course families. I look forward to adding your successes here soon.
