  • They come home with increasingly complex writing assignments
  • They struggle to start writing assignments
  • They struggle to organize ideas into well-crafted essays
  • They need hours of help from you with their writing assignments.

» Write On teaches students to . . .

  • Turn their ideas or “brainstorms” into organized outlines for their essays
  • 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 for each and every writing assignment.

“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)
