Essentials in Writing is a video based homeschool writing curriculum in which students learn how to effectively communicate with readers in written language and become confident writers. The study of language and writing is much more than dissecting sentences and committing a list of grammar rules to memory. It includes learning rules for writing, but it also encompasses learning the concepts that are critical to effective written communication.


Methodical Step-By-Step Approach

Students watch a DVD where the lessons are presented in a methodical, step-by-step approach then proceed to writing assignments.
