WriteShop: Incremental Writing Program Workbook 2
These materials include both instruction and writingassignments.
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.
These materials may offer some light grammar instruction, but the focusis mainly on writing of all types.
Parents who lack confidence in their own ability to teach their students to write have finally got a resource that takes the guess work out of the process. WriteShop provides detailed daily lesson plans and instructions for teachers plus student workbooks with worksheets and forms that walk you all the way through activities, evaluation and grading. Examples, check lists for both students and teachers, and evaluation forms show students the objectives and teachers what to look for in completed work.
Not only do these features make the program easy to use, but the authors have structured lessons to build from the ground up, covering sentence and paragraph structure and style before tackling lengthier assignments. The su

I used the Workbook 1 (blue binder) for the first year and I am using this for high school. Writing is not my strong point, I write like I talk and that is not how writing is done. I feel confident that my students are learning how to improve their writing and vary their sentences.
I also wanted them to be able to write research papers and reports and this is covered in the material.
