Publisher Description:

WriteShop I is an incremental writing program that focuses on teaching teens the steps of the writing process through lessons in descriptive, informative, and narrative writing. The consumable workbook contains Skill Builders, word banks, detailed writing instructions, editing checklists, and evaluation forms.

Designed for those who want a comprehensive program for foundational writing, WriteShop offers an easy-to-use, teacher-student interactive course. Not sure of your ability to teach writing? WriteShop provides detailed daily lesson plans and instructions for teachers plus student workbooks with instructional content, worksheets, and forms. Teacher prep is minimal since the program materials are so well constructed and organized.

Lessons build incrementally, covering sentence and paragraph construction skills and style in Part I before the longer essay assignments in Part II. Lessons build on each other and should be done in order without any skipping. The writing process is taught throughout the program with Part I focused on descriptive, informative, and narrative writing. Part II continues with persuasive writing. Program components include the Teacher Manual (for Parts I & II) and a Student Workbook for each Part.

Detailed lessons are provided along with weekly schedules – but there is flexibility. Assuming a target audience of 7th to 9th grades, lessons are covered with eight days of activities (two weeks with Fridays off). But an alternative one-week schedule is also provided – possibly for high school students who need a quicker pace. The program could be used with motivated younger students as well. The thing to remember is that the skills covered are what would typically be considered foundational writing skills that prepare a student for the more demanding academic writing of high school. Also, not all types of writing (for instance, poetry) are covered.

The spiral-bound Teacher Manual covers all 30 lessons of both Parts I & II and provides lesson plans and schedules plus a wealth of resource material as indicated by tabbed sections such as editing/evaluating, writing samples, answer keys, and common problems of mechanics. There’s even a section that lists “positive & encouraging comments.” Lessons include pre-writing, copying brainstorming (mind-maps), skill-builders (usually grammatical concepts), sloppy copy (rough drafts), dictation, revising (lots of helps for this), and crafting the final draft.

The Student Workbook - Parts I & II each come three-hole punched, loose-leaf, and shrink-wrapped – all ready to be placed into a three-ring binder. Each lesson includes instructional content, student writing samples, and writing process helps which vary with the lesson but might pertain to any part of the writing process. Also included are planning and skill-builder worksheets. Checklists and an evaluation form aid in that process.

Copying and Dictation Exercises are incorporated into each lesson in Part I. These are strongly encouraged and tend to strengthen both writing and listening skills when done consistently. A book with these exercises is available as a separate purchase.

Written by Christians, previous editions did include some biblical references but this latest 2020 edition no longer includes biblical/Christian content.

Overall, this is an excellent writing program and a wonderful, comprehensive resource for parents teaching one or more children at home or teachers in a co-op or class setting. ~ Janice



Category Description for WriteShop Writing Programs:

WriteShop programs have a reputation for building confident writers through an incremental approach. The first WriteShop programs were written for middle school and high school students, and we have been pleased to see that the series has grown "down" to reach the youngest writers as well. The three branches of the program include the original WriteShop (Books 1 and 2), WriteShop Junior and WriteShop Primary. All levels of the program are well-structured, easy to use and give the parent all of the tools to teach writing well.

I have been using WriteShop and like it a lot. The 4th edition is not secular like the new 5th so I wanted to be sure and get this for my younger children in case they stop selling it.

Dawn P on Feb 28, 2020
does this book come with the teachers book or do i have to purchase that seperately?
User on Aug 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This item - #002472 - is the Student Workbook 1. We do have a Set that includes both the Teacher Manual and Workbook 1. We also sell the Teacher Manual separately as well as the second Student Workbook for the course (the Teacher's is for both Student Workbooks).

Is this book in any way religious?
User on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, WriteShop does include Christian material.
Is this book in any way religious?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have not started using this book yet, as our school year begins in September. I have looked through most of the teacher and student workbooks. So far there was only 1 religious reference to some scripture about being encouraged and encouraging. Hope that helps.
What is the difference between this set and the WriteShop I Set with References (WS1WRF)? The description makes it sound like the same program (with additional references), but one item is pictured with Binders and the other with Bound Workbooks.

BEST ANSWER: The set comes with the student book, teacher book, and extras for grammar. The blue three ringer binder is the same product as the new paper back version of writeshoo. They just aren't providing a binder you have to buy your own. The paper in the new book is cheaper quality as well.

Hands down best curriculum for learning how to write!
Absolutely THE best writing curriculum!! My son is of HS age and from being in PS up to 7th grade, had no skills to write well. Most of the writing in this workbook is only 1 paragraph but has taught him so much about HOW to write better. How to use grammar to vary sentence structure and how to use it to be more descriptive. If your child struggles with writing, THiS is the curriculum you will want to buy. Loved it! And I loved the Jr writing curriculum for my younger son.

<p>I bought this curriculum 2 years ago for my 6th grader Wonderful curriculum no complaints there For $4595 I got a nice binder with dividers and the lessons with consumable pages This year (2015) I ordered the same product for another child The price has increased over 20% with much less product The picture shows the binder but it is not included Neither are the dividers The sheets are bound at the top which makes for extra work to tear them off to put into a binder (thankfully I saved the one from before) It would have been nice to know all this beforehand</p>
