Exactly what we needed!
I used this to teach to two writers one year apart. One was reluctant and full of excuses and the other teeming with ideas that in her mind defied the need for mechanics and better structure. This resource helped both of them become better writers and not dislike the writing process so much, as they had experienced perspective from career authors. I found the rubrics helpful for them (and myself) as they could easily check to see that all requirements were met as well as thwarting many excuses. One reviewer mentioned dislike for the flipping of pages. We just made a copy of a reference page if needed as the book is somewhat cumbersome. This curriculum helped them to bridge into more challenging writing programs.

A great way to learn writing!
I have eight children, and I've tried probably 5 to 10 different writing products over the years, hoping one of the products would be a hit. All them failed until we tried Writers in Residence. I'm trying it with both my third and fourth children. I like that it has some grammar as well as lots of fun writing practice.

I was able to look at the curriculum at a friend's house. I thought it seemed engaging.

I like the idea of writing and grammar in one.

I love that writing and LA are all wrapped in one.

Ordered one copy and it looks so good, I want to use it with both my children.

I chose this because I wanted something he could do almost on his own, but also walks him through each and every step of writing. I taught using the six traits method in public school so I know the program brings excellent results.

Hoping this works where many other writing programs have failed for my ASD child (who possibly has dysgraphia).
Jennifer J on May 2, 2016
Programs teach directly to the student therefore taking less of my time are much more likely to actually get done! It looked thorough, interesting and i love that the fact that grammar and mechanics are included as i agree that they are best learned and remembered when taught within the context of their usefulness

Can this be shared between two students or do they have to have a copy of their own? Could we use a spiral notebook for their assignments? I have a 9 year old and 14 year old. :-)
User on Feb 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Writers in Residence can be used by two students, but there are a number of pages that need to be filled out. You could simply make a copy of the pages necessary for both students and keep their writing projects in a 3 ring binder. If you like using a spiral notebook, Keep it in the binder as well.
