We've heard all the obstacles. And we know they are real! 

  • I'm a math and science person. Writing doesn't come easily to me. So we skip it.
  • My kids hate writing. It's like pulling teeth! I avoid the battle altogether.
  • I have no idea how to grade my children's writing. So I don't.
  • We do a little creative writing and report writing here and there. I know it's not enough, but I don't really know how to teach writing in a comprehensive way.
  • I have great plans, but they never seem to come to fruition. I'm not good at spontaneously adding writing to our other lessons like history and science.

We've heard all of your guilt-filled shoulds:

  • I know I should teach more writing. My kids are now in middle school, and they still can't write a decent essay!
  • We should spend more time on writing. I just don't know where to start. I get overwhelmed.

Now, here's the solution: Use a well-crafted writing curriculum that guides you day by day, step by step exactly how to teach your children or teens. You've probably tried those intense writing programs based on classical ideals and ended up throwing up your hands on frustration. Too much, too fast, too complicated. It doesn't have to be that hard to consistently add writing to your homeschool day.
