WriteShop I offers incremental lessons, challenging assignments, and creative activities for teens.
Students improve descriptive, informative, and narrative writing skills by becoming proficient in four vital techniques: brainstorming, drafting, editing, and revising. Not only do students learn to narrow their topics and choose vivid, descriptive wording, they learn to add interest to their writing by varying their sentence structure.
Each lesson's Skill Builder introduces new writing tools, which students have the opportunity to apply during future lessons. This "Learn-Practice-Do" approach helps ensure mastery.
