The Write Well Approach to Writing

tool2.jpg

  • General Description Writing well requires craftmanship more than inspiration. The Write Well method combines techniques from a variety of sources with innovative step-by-step procedures to take the guess work out of writing. Never stare at a blank page again!

  • The Process
Blue Print

Rough Construction

Fancy Decorators

Inspectors

  • The Lessons Each lesson approaches increments in skills development, while modeling the lesson at hand. Clear models, specific tasks, and ready tools yield high results.

  • The Assignments Students complete each of the four steps in the writing process for homework on varied tasks each week. Help from parents is encouraged, while goals for increasing independence are realized over time. The instructor will carefully edit each paper and return by the next scheduled class. For On-Line students, allow 5-7 days turn-around. Assignments from other sources may be substituted, with instructor's approval.

  • The Results Students and parents are frequently surprised by the quick, high results this program yields, if the student applies himself diligently. Students leap in the grade level quality of their writing. Often students find that repeating the class, or continuing the sequence, yields much higher results. Craftsmen only improve with practice.
