We highly recommend Teaching Writing Structure & Style as an excellent resource that gives the parent the “tools to teach” their children how to write. While we may be good writers ourselves, the art of teaching this to our own children may prove difficult and even at times impossible. But help is here. This program of classes, taught from the comfort of your own home via DVD, is designed for the “Parent as Teacher” to watch and learn. I had the exceptional opportunity of taking these class live and in-person, with Mr. Pudewa, which by the way was way more expensive than the classes sold here on DVD. It was one of the best two days I spent, for I had finally learned a natural process to teach my children how to write. No more tears, no more frustration, no more blank stares! You will learn how to teach outlining, creative writing, narratives, picture studies, persuasive essays, research reports as well how to improve writing stylistically. There is no need to create additional assignments for writing, just your current history, religion or literature curriculum writing assignments and apply your newly acquired “tools to teach”. In addition, it is just as valuable for your high school student to watch several of the DVDs as review courses too! You too, can review sections of the course as you need them, or treat yourself and a fellow home educator to a night of learning over a cup of coffee and dessert!
A two day seminar meant for the parent-teacher which presents models and techniques for English composition, both fiction and non-fiction, that logically build upon each other, allowing students to become familiar and competent with a variety of writing formats and styles.There is no need to create assignments for writing, just use the ones already outlined in your history, religion and literature curriculum but employ the methods taught in this DVD.
It is accompanied by a Seminar Workbook/Syllabus containing notes from the course, student examples, and sample lesson plans. Demonstration classes with children of different ages are included. DVD & Book. To supplement this teacher training course you can also purchase Student Writing Intensive DVDs (choose the level that corresponds to student's age or average age. This supplement is a series of classes given directly to the student at the pace you desire.
