Middle school students learn a replicable system for writing.

SOS trains middle school students to write effective & organized essays with our proven formula.

  • Students develop a dependable strategy that students can repeat again and again.
  • Write On’s writing formula frees students from reinventing the wheel with every new writing assignment, and builds their confidence to tackle essays regardless of the topic.
  • Students learn how to evaluate, use, and analyze evidence in their writing.

Write On is a multi-day boot camp that prepares your student for the writing challenges ahead.

Write On teaches students to . . .

  • Turn their ideas or “brainstorms” into an organized outline for their essay.
  • Approach different types of writing assignments (literary analysis, argumentative essays, informative essays, and pro-con papers) with an ordered set of steps to effectively meet the requirements and expectations of the assignment.
  • Develop an effective thesis.
  • Construct a paragraph with a topic sentence and a concluding sentence.
  • Analyze the validity of their evidence, both as a credible source, if applicable, and as valid support to their claim.
  • Follow a sequence of discrete steps each and every time.

Write-On is the workshop for your middle school student if . . .

  • Your child comes home with increasingly complex writing assignments
  • Your student struggles to start writing assignments
  • Your child struggles to organize ideas into a well-crafted essay
  • You spend hours helping your child with writing assignments.

“Yesterday, (my son) had a paper to write. He used the suggestions from Write On as a way to help him format a cogent, well-articulated paper. The materials are excellent and really made the process much easier for him than it has been in the past. Thank you for giving him an invaluable tool that he can use for the rest of his life.” (Parent)
