If you are looking to develop your expository writing skills, check out this course. Expository writing "exposes" puts forth, explains, reveals, or exhibits in detail about something. This style of writing is perfect to use when you want to inform, clarify, or persuade. Honestly, this style of writing is what your child needs to learn for college! It falls perfectly in line with what my college professors wanted. Luckily, I had learned this style of writing during my high school years, so I was well prepared. You'll want to prepare your child in the same way.

This book falls naturally into seven sections. There is much to cover here and the writing and research process takes time so you could plan to spend more than one year with this course. (Remember, college professors often give students a whole semester to work on one very detailed and in-depth paper.) Section one works on single paragraph formats. Then in section two you'll work on the elements of the five paragraph essay and different formats you can use. Book reports put the five paragraph formats to use in section three. Section four works on business writing, such as: business letters, letters of complaint, cover letters, political letters, and resume writing. In section five, you'll work on the principle of condensation as you learn how to write in various lengths reduce, abridge, abbreviate, shorten, cut, compress, compact, or distill your work! Now you are ready to compose a major paper and all its components (title page, endnotes, appendix, bibliography, etc), as outlined in section six. Section seven contains all the check sheets and forms, tests, answer keys, and sample week-by-week schedules to help you organize deadlines for the longer, more detailed papers. This workbook is very straightforward in its presentation of this writing style, but it is very clear, concise, and helpful. If my recommendation isn't enough, then maybe you'd be interested to know that this is also one of Cathy Duffy's 100 Top Picks. 160 pgs, pb.

Making the course even more user-friendly, the DVD, with author, Frode Jensen, as presenter, walks the student through each section. Presentations sometimes include on screen visuals to enhance the learning experience. This DVD does not take the place of the book but expands on the book's explanations. As before, the book can still be used without the DVD. Presentations are 6-10 minutes in length with the entire DVD lasting about an hour and a half. Navigation to a particular presentation is easy. elise/Janice
