Publisher Description:

This DVD contains twelve lectures and is meant to supplement, not replace, the Jensen’s Format Writing book. It has a presentation on how to score student writing using the analytical keys and goes through the process with you. It contains overviews of the various sections in the book and does some teaching and explaining, but it is also motivational for the student. Most of the material covered in the DVD is in the book, but there are a couple of things that are not. Most people find the DVD helpful. It was created due to popular demand. Learn:

  • the secret of cutting your work in half when it comes to writing a paper.
  • how to order your presentation for its most powerful effect on the reader.
  • a technique for getting the essence of what you read down on paper for future reference.
  • how to stack up your ideas so that they flow together in a natural fashion.
  • how to move ideas from sentence to sentence by following a simple rule.
  • all about what and how to document your sources when doing research and writing.
Category Description for Jensen's Format Writing:

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 is organized into six sections. There is much to cover here so you could plan to spend more than one year with this course, although there is a suggested 180-day schedule. 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 of its components

While the book itself is complete in program, having the DVD will provide a more complete understanding of the topics my student will be learning, allowing me to further assist if needed.

Could this DVD be used with an older version of the book? I have the 2003 edition of the book.
Melissa H on Feb 19, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I don’t know for certain if it will work with that edition but my thoughts are that it will. We have a newer book and when we watch the video he mentions page numbers for the book that do not match up with ours, but we understand what he is referring to anyway. So perhaps the video would actually match up with the one you have.
