Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Ensure your high school student is well prepared for writing in college or the real world with this well-respected, popular expository writing course. This curriculum systematically and effectively teaches students writing structure and organization, ranging from paragraphs to business letters to research papers. College-bound students will especially benefit from this course, though it is useful for all students with its emphasis on clarity.

This bundle includes both the book and DVD, which will walk you through how to grade student writing and also includes lectures and motivational material for students.

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

Love the dvd component, and focus in writing

Tried and True. We Like IEW also, but when it comes to getting down to serious intensives for the senior year, we think Jensen's is succinct and gets the job done without a lot of extraneous information to digest.

I researched writing curriculum for the high school level for a good while. :) The benefits of Jensen's are 1. Good, solid reviews all around. The Cathy Duffy Review was quite helpful. 2. It can be spread out into a two-year program, which works well for writing credits before a dual-enrollment option. 3. I like the way it builds and requires mastery of each level. 4. The child I purchased it for currently hopes to pursue a career I think will require quite a bit of college writing.

I've been told by my good friend and Charlotte Mason education mentor that if my high schoolers work through this program, they will be ready for college writing.

Excellent, easy, and effective.
Jensen’s Format Writing is my staple writing program. A must-have. We had a very old copy and just purchased the latest edition with the DVD supplement; it’s better and easier to use. The sample schedule is a great help.

This writing course covers the intricacies of different styles of paragraphs and essays. It breaks down the framework of building a paper. However, this course does not provide sentence mechanics, that my son so desperately needs.
