Not only makes writing meaningful and gives students practice in all writing skills, but it is a book that every family wants to own. By researching and interviewing family members, students record all those stories that parents wish were in print. Students will write 12 - 25 stories, revise, proof read, and then publish their work. Grammar and writing skills are interwoven throughout this composition text and is the only language arts program needed for the year.

The worktext is divided into 30 steps, which is designed for one step per week. Students who have written their own novels through Learn to Write the Novel Way will "fly" through the "clean-up" of grammar, punctuation, etc., whereas less mature writers will need to progress more slowly and thoroughly.

Each step has three sections — Learn, Practice/Prepare, Apply. The Learn section is for you, as coach, to do WITH your student. The Practice/Prepare section is for the student to do independently, as reinforcement of what he learned. The Apply section is for him to apply what he has learned to his own book.

Once a week you, the coach, and your student meet to introduce the Learn section (1-2 hours). The student then does the assigned Practice and Apply sections (3-6 hours). When he has completed each activity, he checks the box next to the assignment. At the end of each week you and the student review and refine his work. When all the boxes of a step are checked, he is ready for the next step.

The amount of time spent each week is variable, depending upon your student's level of competency, his speed of writing, and his ability to focus. There is a wide spectrum here. Take the time that is needed for proficiency. Put aside time for writing every day. If more time is needed for a particular step, by all means, take it. This program is designed to fit every student's uniqueness. Adapt accordingly.
