What Is WriteShop?
Do any of your kids have the “writing gene”? Or do you have writing-phobic children who pretty much resist anything having to do with pencil and paper?
No matter what kind of learner you have, teaching writing can be intimidating or overwhelming. Even if you’re a writer, it doesn’t automatically mean you know how to teach writing. Putting words on paper might come naturally to you, but how do you pass on what you know and love to a child who hates it?
We’ve been there. We understand the challenges of teaching writing. That’s why we’ve created materials that teach your child how to write—and show you how to teach. Whether your children are very young or well into their teens, WriteShop’s step-by-step lessons will help you introduce and review the building blocks of the writing process.
