The Student Writing Intensive is a course presented directly to students.

This package contains:

  • Structure & Style Overview DVD for parents and teachers
  • Four instructional DVDs for the student
  • Three-ring binder with dividers
  • Student packet containing scope & sequence, teacher’s notes, and student handouts for one student (about 100 pages in all)

For your convenience, additional Student Materials are sold separately for use with multiple students.

Each group (A, B, or C) presumes no previous experience and differs mainly in the type of the source texts used, the speed of presentation, and sophistication of vocabulary. Consequently, you should choose the level based on your child's age and maturity, rather than writing ability; and, if you wish to use the Student Writing Intensive with children of mixed ages, you can generally "shoot for the middle" and get excellent results.

The video classes alone could be completed in as little time as four days, whereas the course with the additional assignments could be stretched out to four weeks or even four months, depending on how much time is spent on this program each day. The suggested daily lesson plans spread the course over 15 intensive weeks. The daily lesson plans advise on what portion of the disc to watch followed by several practice assignments to help the material stick.

For whom is this course most beneficial? Perhaps the most dramatic results may be seen with reluctant writers, who can immediately enjoy the author’s humor, realize the process is not so overwhelming, and get started! Once they learn techniques to create a more enjoyable finished product, their concept of writing being "too hard" changes.
