    How does Time4Writing work?

    Time4Writing presents its courses in a “virtual campus.” Students have their own secure login to:

    • Access their online course
    • Complete a variety of writing assignments
    • Receive teacher feedback

    Each course is divided into eight weekly units each with a specific goal.

    Students complete the assignments in the sequence in which they appear. The teacher will grade and provide feedback on all writing assignments.

    Parents are sent student progress reports and accomplishments while students receive a certificate of completion when all assignments are completed successfully.

    How does teacher feedback work?

    Teachers review all completed writing assignments within 24 business hours Monday through Friday. On occasion, teachers will only provide feedback to give students another opportunity to make revisions before grading the assignment. Students can access their grades and feedback within their student login. Students will be prompted to the next activity when the writing assignment has been graded.

    How do students communicate with the teacher?

    All communication between student and teacher is done within the Time4Writing campus using an internal messaging system. Parents can view a copy of all messages inside the student login.

    How do parents communicate with the teacher?

    How much time will students need to complete a course?

    Each course will require approximately 3-5 hours per week. The time spent varies on the course and the student. The enrollment lasts a total of 63 consecutive days.

    Can I finish a course in less than 8 weeks?

    Each course includes eight unit studies. Typically, one unit study is completed each week. It is possible to complete the course in less than eight weeks if student assignments and teacher feedback are both completed in less than one week time spans. Suggested accelerated schedules can be found inside many of our courses.

    Can I stop in the middle and restart the course later?

    By using the dormancy feature, students can take a few weeks off (up to a month) from the course if needed for a vacation, unexpected events, or any other reasons. During dormancy, the student will be unable to access the course. Parents are notified at the end of the dormancy period, and the student may then resume their work at the spot where it was left. There is a nominal fee of $5.00 associated with this request, and it may only be requested one time during the student’s enrollment in the course.

    How does Time4Writing work with teachers, schools, and school districts?

    Time4Writing is flexible so it can accommodate schools in a variety of ways. Schools can use our program with or without our teachers. Often, schools prefer to use our online campus but use their own state certified teachers. For more information, please inquire using our contact us form.
