Product Description:

Subtitled "Mastering the Paragraph," this course teaches students how to write nine different types of paragraphs: descriptive, definition, narrative, process, compare/contrast, cause/effect, analogy, defending a position, and literary character analysis. As well as learning these different types of writing, students will also learn to evaluate paragraphs critically, the way teachers do. The text is set up to be a 36 week course, which includes cyclical lessons for the different styles of paragraph writing, a few introductory chapters on sentences, formal writing guidelines, the purpose of writing, writing process overviews, and a final test week. The book also lists outlines for a slower, two-year schedule and an accelerated schedule of 20 weeks.

How is writing in each paragraph style taught? A three-week rotation begins with students constructing an assigned paragraph, progressing to researching and preparing notes for a timed-write session in the second week of class, and finally, correcting and editing the paragraph from week one. The lessons are clearly laid out, with plenty of examples to illustrate the type of writing being taught. The answer key/test booklet is extremely helpful to have, as it contains answers for all of the daily assignments, as well as quizzes and a final exam. Another bonus to the course is its author, Shari Barrett, with a wealth of experience in the subject area and in the homeschool realm, having taught her own children at home since the 1980s, and other chidren as well. She holds a degree in secondary education, a passion for writing, and a real desire to teach - now that's a great combination! ~ Zach

Just wondering if this is self-teacing for the student?
User on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, with the exception that your student will need someone to grade their papers. This is used in our co-op for Writing, and has helped grow my writer immensely.

Having met with the author and gone over this material I must say that it is the most complete writing curriculum that I have run across It is quite in-depth and can be used as a 1 or 2 year program Your child must have a good foundation in English however and a firm understanding of parts of speech I highly recommend this for anyone with writing in his future be it doing evaluations or term papers
