"Help! My teenager can't even write a paragraph by himself."
"My child loves to 'journal', but won't write an organized paragraph for anything."
The Universal Writing Method
"Loose thought patterns" plague many children and teens, particularly those suffering with Dysgraphia, ADD or Auditory Processing Problems. They have difficulty thinking in an organized manner, and therefore cannot write in an organized manner. I found I was able to engage even my most reluctant students in this process by giving them Right Brain, visual hangers to put their thoughts on. They could see their whole paper before it is written. This works when all other methods haven't worked...Guaranteed. (2nd grade-10th).
I used this painless method in my Resource Rooms Language Arts room. By the end of the year I got 3-4 page papers. No curriculum purchase. Just a very successful teaching method.
All you need is a whiteboard and the teacher and student working together using this Right Brain "whole" method. You will be surprised how this will work with your struggling writer. They'll ask to write their next paper!
When your student is writing papers well, then you can move on to any of the traditional writing programs.
So many teachers and students have been waiting for this video presentation of this simple but powerful method of teaching writing.
For use with teenagers, adolescents. and young children.
